I have been on Requip xl since being diagnosed in 09. The last 6 months I have been taking requip xl 4mg tablets to equal 12 to !6 mg a day. My neuro put me on sinamet and at first was in a fog but have cut back and better now. When ordering my new Rx I found what I had been taking was the generic for requip. For the last 3 months I have been miserable--feeling horrible, bad attitude, movement really bad. I have always been on the real Requip and felt so much better. Was wondering if their is a connection. Does the generic not have the same amount of medicine as the real requip?
