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!

Hiker,

Since it is a low dose (which it should be to start) it can take any where from 1 to 3 days to feel the effects. In some people it may take longer because they may require a larger dosage. 

This is a medication that you should start at a low dose and increase it slowly to avoid side effects. If you don't see any relief in symptoms in about 7 days, you should get in touch with your doctor. 

I hope this helps and please keep me posted

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?

Hiker,

The average dose varies dependingon theperson, maybe 3 to 5 mg three times a day of immediaterelease.

I do see dizziness as an issue when someone first starts on the medicationand when the get up from a sitting or laying down position.

Ihopethishelps and please keep me posted.
