I take 8mg of Requip per day. I noticed quite quickly that, slowly but surely, I was gaining weight. I did all the usual things - used a smaller plate, was careful what I ate, increased my exercise - but still it increases. Has anyone else had a similar problem and have they managed to lose the extra weight. I am not very tall so the extra weight is more noticeable I would be grateful to hear how other people, assuming I am not alone with this weight gain, have managed to lose weight.
