  • Dizziness was the most disturbing symptom that precipitated my early retirement. I wanted to rule out cardio events. Cardio Doc ordered a tilt table test that confirmed neuro-cardiogenic syncope... orthostatic hypo tension.

    It's still a problem and I think most meds contribute. Bet there is a fortune for the researchers that come up with the antidizzy fix.

  • god i hope there is something out there that gets rid of my dizziness too. I have had it mildly for years but the mirapex and requip makes it so much worse , i feel like i am about to pass out several times a day with it, horrid,.

    I am seeing neuro on 15th so fingers crossed they can do something to help

  • I started taking requip fromthe begining and it always did a number on me. Dizzy, really bad upset stomach. After about 2 years my Dr put me on requip xl. That was rough too but I was feeling better for a time. I have been taking requip xl 2x a day and I've noticed a change right away. I got so bad , the weather is constantly changing where I live, that I would wear a nauseau band on my wrist at the pressure point. I can telly you when a front is coming in. I also take supplements to help support my body. I was never into the vitamin thing. But they really work and have helped out a lot. You know you might have Meniurs syndrom. I've had that for years.

    Maybe the fluid in your ears is a little off. which can cause everything else to go wonky. There are very mild meds you can take for it that will help control it. Also what you eat plays a role in this too. When I don't eat right or keep hydrated enough, I can feel it coming on--Dizziness. You never know--explore all your options.

  • Thank you everyone!

  • Good luck. Mirapex/requip made me very ill in many ways. They're not for everyone. Crystal ginger helps with nausea.

  • p.s. sinemet doesn't make me dizzy.

  • I will ask my dr. Thanks!
