Migraine, sleep paralysis, hearing voices


#1
I have been taking Requip for six months and managed to get to my maintenance dose of 8 mg.
In the last couple of weeks I have had an episode of sleep paralysis when I could've sworn someone was behind me and touched my neck. I couldn't move a muscle and I could talk.
I also woke up hearing voices that were not there. But most recently I have been getting visual disturbances, I get a sparkly aura around whatever I'm looking at, making it hard to see, and closely followed by headache.
I have never been a sufferer of migraines but from what other people have told me, sounds very similar to what I have this experiencing.

Is this the Requip that is causing the symptoms?

anybody else had the symptoms and what did you do?

Hello Caroline.
I take Requip, only 6mg, I also get visual disturbance. How long have you been at your dose of 8mg? I find the disturbances are more noticeable when my dose is increased and then they calm down as I adjust to the new dosage level. My main problem is judging distance, a few times people have seemed to be coming out of the telly into the room, but still no luck with Brad Pitt!

I used to have visual migraine when I was menopausal, but that is not a bother now.
