Does this patch contain the same medicine as requip? Is it safe to say that if you couldnt handle requip the patch wouldnt work either?

Not exactly the same medicine, but in the same class.

Most docs would not recommend the patch for anyone who had problems with Mirapex, Requip or any other agonist as the issues are likely to be the same.
