Dopamine agonists - side effects
I have recently started taking the DA ropinirole 10 mg (started on 2, then 4 etc) and found it quite helpful in some respects… It seems to help with fatigue and to reduce tension somehow, and I have found specifically that I've been able to play the guitar (important to me )a lot better than before.
Also seem to have some side effects … the shake I think is worse than before ... And I feel a bit nauseous and woozy , I feel quite weak particularly my legs .
Interestingly the benefits seemed to come from the 2 mg (which I took for a week before increasing to 4 and eventually up to 10 ) straight away and 10 mg doesn't seem any better than 2.
I'm still on madopoar / levodopa hundred x 3 daily as before .
With regard to the DA you read a lot about the obsessive-compulsive side-effects which I'm not getting .
... wondered if anybody else had similar experiences to me with ropinirole?
