Dopamine agonists have been studied in only a few trials for depression. Both Mirapex and Requip have shown definite effects.
I haven't been on Mirapex, but have been on Requip(ropinirole) for 2 months with excellent results as add on therapy to Cymbalta and Lamictal. I have had absolutely no sleepiness or fatigue. In fact, it has been activating and motivating, which is why I tried it in the first place. But it also helps my mood per se.
The studies showed that about 1.5 mg was the mean dose in one and about 2.5 mg in the other. I had effects from 1.5 mg, but went up to 3 mg gradually to see if it maxed out further, and I think it was best at this dose.
There was poop out reported, but none so far with me.
