A previous neurologist had prescribed 24 mg of Requip XL daily. I also take 600 mg of Stalevo and 10 tablets of Carbidopa / Levodopa 25/100 each day. The next neurologist decreased the dosage from 24 mg to 12 mg. My new neurologist, who is a movement disorder specialist, has had me taper off from 12 to 10 to 8 to 6 mg daily. I'm having what I would term pretty severe withdrawal symptoms. She says that I should tough it out if at all possible. Have any of you had a similar experience?
