Brief Answer:
Sifrol can be used

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Mirapex (Pramipexole) is a medicine usually used for treating Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome. Unfortunately most alternatives are prescription medicines.

Sifrol (pramipexole) is the same medicine available under a different medicine. So it can be used to bridge the gap.

Let me know if I could help further.
