Medication is a finicky thing and it might take some time before you figure out what works and what doesn’t. I’m glad you’re already noticing some improvements though! Please do feel free to post and ask more questions. We also have a webpage on ropinirole that you can check out for a little more info.
Regarding how much of an improvement you’ll see overall - that depends. Some PWP find that their medication provides them with a normal or near-normal experience. Others do not see such a drastic change, but are still grateful for the additional normalcy that the medication brings. Everyone is different and their bodies respond differently, so it would be quite difficult to say what ropinirole has in store for you.
Stay positive, keep an open mind, listen to your body, and keep open communication with your doctor. Only you will be able to decide how the dosage makes you feel. If you’ve been advised to go to 8mg or 10mg, then go at least to 8mg and see how you feel - and talk to your neurologist. Going to 10mg may not be needed if 8mg works well for you. You can also go to 10mg, just to try, and then make a decision based on how your body feels. How you feel.
You’re also welcome to reach out to our helpline with any questions or concerns you may be having about your medication. Our advisers would be more than happy to help.
