don't need as much of it? Requip was the first meds (along with Zelapar) my neuro 's put me on. The highs and lows of the regular requip about did me in. So, I've been on the XL for a few years- still does a # on my stomach but it works most days. I just started amantadine and am wondering if (all goes well) could Icut back on the requip XL maybe I'd feel better. I take 8mg of reqip XL 2x a day- the 1 16mg pill really bothered my stomach. I am wondering if anybody was on requip--then cut back because of a new med was added ? or have y'all always taken a low dosage with an other med?
