    ER vs 3x/day

    I am taking Ropinirole hcl 1mg at 7am, 1pm, 5pm. Someone just told me there is Ropinirole extended release. Why would you take it 3x day when there is ER available? Advantages/disadvantages? And is 3mg/day considered low or average dosage? I also take rasagaline 1mg day. Thanks!

    insomnia

    Has anyone had success with cognitive behavior therapy and/or sleep restriction to treat insomnia? I've had insomnia for almost 20 years and still trying to tame the beast! I take melatonin but find it marginally helpful. Surprisingly I only occassionaly have daytime sleepiness.

    So now I am up to 3mg/day with no side effects and definitely helping with symptoms!
  7. Does Requip/Ropinirole cause weight gain? If so it is the drug that causes weight gain, or is it indirectly because of side effect of compulsive eating? Thanks!

    Requip/Ropinirole

    Do you find that the Ropinerole helps your symptoms?

    Thanks! So I am guessing that at 1.5 mg/day my dosage is still pretty low. I'm going to ask my MDS if i should increase it. She gave me the choice of agonist or a C-L, and left it up to me to choose.

    JB what dosage of requip were you on when you got the sleep attacks? I just started .5mg three times/day and don't notice any side effects but also don't notice any symptom relief.

    drugs

    How do you decide whether to start with an agonist or Carbidopa-levodopa? I was diagnosed 1.5 yrs ago and am 55 with primarily motor symptoms (no tremor.) My MDS recommended I start taking something, and she said it is up to me which drug I start with. So why would I take one over the other? HOw do you decide?

    ropinirole

    Thank you! Just curious - what is the "average" dosage you see for newly diagnosed patients? And do you see many with dizzyness as a side effect?

    Requip/Ropinirole

    For those of you taking requip or Ropinirole, what dosage are you on? My neuro started me on .25 mg Ropinirole HCL 3 days ago and I don't notice any difference in my symptoms, which are primarily motor (stiffness, left fingers less coordinated, slight drag of left foot.) Thanks!

    Ropinirole

    I started taking Ropinirole hcl .25mg at 7am, 1pm. 5pm yesterday. I don't notice any side effects nor changes in symptoms. how long does it take before I'll notice a benefit? I also take rasagaline 1 mg daily. Thanks!
