I really want to know about Agonist treatment in NZ. i am living in the UK at present which has no restrctions on prescribing so people are on one of three agonists here, Rotigotine patches or Primapexole or ropinerole. All affect slightly different neuro pathways i believe so what works for one, others find doesn't suit them so they can change medication to another agonist.
The most commonly used in GB is probably Ropinerole XL which is taken once a day. It has been available for about 5 years I think and there is now a generic version. I don't think it is available in NZ? Am i right? is there a long acting agonist available to PwP in NZ?
