I am also on Neupro 4 mg plus recipe 1.5 mg.
It has been working really well for the past 3 months, however I am now having an allergic reaction to the adhesive in the patch, really itchy! I have been told to discontinue the patch and I guess ultimately I will have to but very reluctant since i have augmented on other dopamine agonists and thought I finally had the answer. Dr. M recommended I switch to Mirapex ER. Unfortunately it is not covered by my health plan, in fact not available in Canada. However, I was able to get a prescription in Florida and to my horror, the cost is over $1,000 US a month.
I am at a loss as to what to do and wondered if anyone out there has a solution to the rash and itching with Neupro or has made the switch to Mirapex ER.
