I have been using the Neupro patch but augmented on it. I managed to wean off it gradually with the help of Tramadol and have been off it now for six months. Unfortunately I experienced horrendous side effects with the Tramadol ( severe constipation and a burning sensation on my skin) so can’t take that again . After this the doctor prescribed Gaberpentin which helped at first but now is, not only losing its effect but it is also giving me the same side effects. The constipation is really severe as I have suffered from it for most of my life before starting medication. I am 76 years of age and my body can’t stand any more problems.
I would really like to have an iron infusion but my GP seems to have his hands tied and won’t consider it as I’m not anaemic. (My ferratin level is 66) I live in the UK near Sheffield and I wondered if anyone knows where I could get an infusion privately
