I have been trying to wean myself off of ropinirole .. I also take colonzapam ... I went to my GP about 3weeks ago and from what I have learned here I am and was in full augmentation ... My GP raised my dosage from 1mg 3x day of ropinirole to 2mg 3x day of ropinirole and raised my colonzapam from 1mg 3x a day to 1mg a day 4x a day...if I took it like this I would be on 6 mg. of ropinirole and 3 mg. colonzapam a day!!!
Needless to say I am not taking all this because I have been in horrible shape and getting worse!! I am taking some vitamins and minerals and stuff that I bought at the local Sunflower Store and a real helpful young girl sold me a bunch of different things to try ...
Thank you all in advance for any advice anyone can tell me ... Like how long should I expect this withdrawal period to be so bad and is it good or bad for me to continue the colonzapam while trying to get off the ropinirole???
I will be 67 years old in October and I have suffered from RLS ever since I can remember and I have been on many medications over the years and the side effects are outweighing anything remotely positive to the benefits!!
I am going crazy with jerking and just feeling worse than any better it seems so far and I started cutting back September 3 and today is September 21????
