I read a lot on here about the danger of augmentation with dopamine agonists and of switching to opiates. But from what I read, opiates are also dopamine agonists.
My doc is probably about as keen to let me have opiates or even benzodiazepines as offer an alcohol a drink.
I, myself, have thought occasionally, that if I were a Victorian, I would have been finishing myself off with laudanum, and am aware that benzodiazepines are harder on the kidneys and liver than the zopiclone I also take, and presumably ropinirole.
I will need to get a repeat for my ropinirole before the middle of this week. I'm currently averaging about 4.5 mg per afternoon/night.
Anyone any comments?
(Gabapentin does not work for me at all.)
