  1. Dear Dr.,

    i am 43 and was diagnosed with PD two weeks ago.  Had my DaT Scan yesterday and the results were consistent with the clinical diagnosis of PD.  Started ReQuip today (2mg) and am so sleepy I can barely function.  The nurse told me I could take it at night.  Wondering if that would help my symptoms during the day?? I have no nighttime symptoms.

    Thank you for your help!

      You may want to decrease the dose; go slower on titration and if this doesn't work switch to Sinemet,
