half Neupro patch?

2 posts in this topic

Is it safe to cut the 6mg Neupro patch in half to help taper off? We used up the 2mg pack starting on Neupro, and now have no way to transition off.

 

How much overlap is advisable on beginning Requip?

 

Doc rushed off and left us no guidance.

 

Thanks.

I would not cut and simply use up what you have and immediately start with the requip and go higher as soon as you can.

 

The tapering guideline is just a precaution....some patients do not really need to taper off the patch. They just discontinue it when the requip is at therapeutic level.

 

Yours,
