after taking mirapexin without success. I went on to Requip, slowly increasing the dose until I got to 8 mg, then I started get hallucinations, sparkly vision,hearing voices, etc. I reduced down to 6 mg and all those unwanted symptoms went.
Went to see the neurologist who decided dopamine agonists don't suit me and has referred me to a Parkinson's specialist. in the meantime, he has put me on a low dose of neupro patches,to increase slowly. I feel so stiff, tired and a bit nauseous and my head is swirling. The question is, should I stay on the patches, or go back to 6 mg Requip until I see the specialist in June?. At least the Requip was managing the Parkinson's.
what does everyone think I'd welcome any advice. Will the GP even let me go back to Requip after the neurologist has changed me to the patches.
