(21) Other medications that can be considered to reduce drug-induced motor complications include pergolide
, pramipexole, ropinirole, and tolcapone.
For medication dosages, LEDD was calculated from patient medication dosages as per the following: LEDD = (regular levodopa dosage) + 0.75 (slow-release levodopa) + 10 (bromocriptine) + 10 (pergolide
) + amantadine.
Cardiac valvulopathies and pulmonary-retroperitoneal fibrosis may develop with long-term use and high doses of ergot derivative dopamine agonists, particularly pergolide
and cabergoline (17,18).
Daily doses of medication were standardized using an established formula  as follows: 100 mg standard levodopa =125 mg sustained-release levodopa =1.5 mg pramipexole =6 mg ropinirole =10 mg bromocriptine =1 mg pergolide
(levodopa equivalent values are shown in Table 1).

reported in the journal Sleep that "Levodopa with decarboxylase inhibitors, and the dopaminergic agonists pergolide
, pramipexole, and ropinirole are effective in the treatment of RLS and PLMD." Despite the promise that dopamine augmenting compounds can reduce the symptoms of RLS, it should be mentioned that their use for RLS is currently only approved for adults; data are lacking with regards to their use for RLS in pediatric populations and during pregnancy.
