    My neuro and I think it's possible to decrease my Requip, and we think there's a even a long shot that I can eliminate it altogether, (that or taper down to 1 mg each morning) Currently I take four X 1 mg Requip at the times indicated below; please note that I take the Requip ALONG WITH my Sinemet, also as indicated 800 (1 requip + 2 sinemet) 1100 (1 requip + 2 sinemet) (200 - I take only Sinemet here - no Requip) 500 (1 requip + 2 sinemet) 900 (I take only ONE sinemet here instead of two + I take one Requip) TOTAL: 9 TABS SINEMET + 4 TABS REQUIP How quickly can I SAFELY can I taper this and how would you suggest that I schedule it? I have taken Sinemet since 2008 and Requip since 2007 and have no dyskinesia. I am deeply grateful for your help! I know this is a lot of trouble to figure out, but you have first-hand knowledge that no one else does. Thank you for all that you do.
