Ropinirole

Recommended Posts

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!

Usually it takes several weeks and you will need to keep dialing the dose up with your doctor as .25 per dose may be too low.  We build up doses slowly and monitor for side effects such as impulse control disorders (shopping, gambling, etc.).

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?

It varies considerably and we do not talk in averages.  We start low and go slow on titrations.  Dizziness can be seen but is uncommon.  Usually a slower titration helps.
