Neupro 2mg

I'm almost afraid to "put mouth on it" but I have started the Neupro 2mg patch (1mg was not enough) and have had 3 nights of the most restful sleep I have ever had. It's not a drugged sleep, but a refreshing sleep. The first couple days were rough - headache and nausea in the morning, but that seems to be gone. There was also a night when the edges of the patch didn't stick and I had some Mirapex withdrawal symptoms again; then I looked at the wrapper for the patch and it was expired. I'm hoping this keeps up. Fingers crossed.

Oh thats great to hear catz after your previous horrendous experience! Fancy giving you an out of date med! I am having the same relief from the 1mg patch its amazing I feel like a new woman and am now able to drive again.I wonder if the 1mg is working for me as I have had several months off mirapex so its like starting again?

Really pleased for you ..take care .kim x
