Hi all. I just started on Ropinerole which has been added to my Azilect. I took 2 mg (extended release) for 2 weeks and 2 days ago titrated up to 4mg. Can't say I've noticed much therapeutic difference yet but two things I definitely have noticed are 1) Headaches and 2) Constipation. These are a surprise to me as I was awaiting nausea and hallucinations, neither of which has happened so far.
I'm told that these symptoms may lessen with time but I'm curious to know if members of the community have had anything similar and if there are any strategies for the constipation. I've eaten buckets of prunes which has kept me reasonably regular but I'm surprised at the amount of fiber I'm ingesting just to keep me at this stage.
