Hi mopsy1950 i have now been on ropinerole for 12months, i ended going up to 2mgs which controlled it most nights, i did have odd nights when i was up. Then i started getting breakthrough during the day. I then went on to slow release tablets, due to a problem with the ordinary ropinerole. Then ended up also having to add 500micograms. I also exercise regularly which helped with weight. I also started taking a multivitamin, with magnesium, zinc and magnesium, which some people have recommended. I also have taken up colouring again, i find this helpful when i am up in the night, as you are occupying your mind, hope this helps shaft1952
