I'm on the Neupro 2mg patch after a ridiculously difficult cold turkey weaning from Mirapex (1.5mg nightly). I'm finding that there are a few things the directions don't mention but that seem to make a difference in how well it works.
1. Cleaning the area - if I use one of those face soaps that contain emollients.... it doesn't work as well. If I use a clear glycerin soap it works better.
2. Time of patch change. Night just doesn't work for me. I know it's continued release but I seem to do better if I do it in the morning.
3. Placement of patch - thighs don't work, period. Upper arm is the best.
Anyone else noticed this about the Neupro patch?
