I've had great success with pramipexole for just over a year, but some months ago, I developd a tic that my doctor diagnosed as dyskinesia. She then switched me to ropinirole (Requip), which I have been taking for 3 nights.
My question is this: How long can I expect the tics to stay around? Won't the ropinirole cause tics too, since it is a similar drug to pramipexole?
PS) The switch to ropinorole was a nightmare for the first couple of nights. I had to inrease the dosage significantly. I've found an equivalency of 1,5 mgs of ropinirole to 1mg of pramipexole, but is that right? It seems more like I have to take double or more to get the same the same relief I get from the pramipexole.
