I've been reading everybody's comments on Magnesium, Iron, Diet etc and this is something I'm very interested in.
As I have said before by doctor won't support me in coming off the ropinirole (I have augmentation) and has suggested I wait until my appt comes through from the neurologist but I have no idea how long this may be and how much good it will be. I want to take control of it if I can.
I have read that I should reduce the ropinirole by 0.5mg every 3 days (I'm currently on 2mg a day). I expect it will be bad - has anybody experienced this and how did you manage?
I currently take magnesium malate but so far have noticed no difference (it has only been a week) and I wonder if the ropinirole might be a factor?
I would like to come off the ropinirole and then perhaps continue with the magnesium for a month before I introduce anything else or I will not be able to identify what is helping. I'm very interested in the comments on iron but how do you know which type and how much. And if your iron levels are normal is it harmful to take supplements? Last time I had a blood test for iron it was ok.
And in the meantime I'm going to try and adjust my diet. I already eat very healthily but could cut out the biscuits, chocolate and cakes that creep in now and again. Funnily enough I crave these when my legs are bad in the evening and my moral and willpower is very low.
