Ropinirole dosage to induce hypersexuality?

Recommended Posts

May I suggest you seek advice from your neurologist as to gradual weaning off Ropinirole.  Do not stop Ropinirole cold turkey ! Although you want to act quickly, you still need to follow certain dosage reduction.

 

Good luck !

I agree. I just quit one night.  It was pretty rough!   For me, it was only 24 hours of insanity and then I was fine.  I don't know all the risks of just quitting, so be careful.

Animus, you can't be serious!

Years ago, I had a Dr. perscribe me Adderall out of the blue. I was complaining about fatigue and troubles concentrating (the start of PD for me) Diagnosed me with ADHD after 5 minutes of speaking with him. Didn't order any tests, didn't refer me to a psychiatrist, and didn't request any followup appointments. I found myself a new PCP.

 

That said, I don't think its too far of a stretch for this type of thing to happen to the poster in this case.

Thanks Mireille and Murray for your posts. Does anyone know if I can legally buy genuine Amantadine or L dopa on the internet without a prescription?...I fear my neurologist won't go for it. My marriage won't survive any more indiscretions eg caught watching soft porn, looking at oter women or speculating  gambling and financially things are bad due to all this     

thanks Osborn

You can get L-dopa as a supplement. I see a few options on Amazon. The trouble is self-regulation.

Best natural products to normal restore sexual function is Ashwaghanda for men and Shatavari for women.

I have tried Ashwaghanda and there is an herb called "Goat Weed".  Here are examples: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_2_9?url=search-alias%3Dhpc&field-keywords=goat+weed&sprefix=goat+weed%2Caps%2C208&crid=EUNJZE8ST4YN.  I have tried this also; which had quicker results of you follow the instructions.

If a drug is causing you so many problems, why are you taking it?  Surely these side effects are worse than the disease.

When I was on it, it was kind of addictive and I was delusional in my decision making.  I kept thinking I could handle it, but I really couldn't.  I kept thinking other things and acting out of character, but not realizing how off I was.  So, he needs someone to cut him off and monitor him.

Thanks MurrayPD2 and PatriotM. Despite the problems with Ropinirole and Parladol I have had relief from symptoms such as depression (motivation and "get up and go" improved) and restless leg syndrome but maybe agonists stimulate things too much. have just spent £2000 in the last two months on gambling speculations. Has anybody used the new drug Neupro please? It comes in patch form. Thanks.

yes, I started with Neupro.  I am not sure if it made things worse, but they added a some dopamine after I had to go down form the max dose of Neupro due to side effects.  After that, I was having similar problems as Ropinirole..  In fact, the VAs replacement for Neupro was Ropinirole,  So, if you have problems with one, you are likely to have problems with the other.

I lived for year with the effect of anti depressives and my sex drive.  Sinemet, Dopamine and Levadopa, changed all that and I have my "drive" back.  Unfortunately, my psychiatrist only told me to "be careful" as the dopamine decreases inhibitions exponentially.  Great feeling but I do hide my Visa from myself whenever I drive to the city.
