For the generic, rotigotine patches, used for Parkinson’s the recommendations are:
- 8mg if used as a monotherapy;
- 16mg if used with L/C.
I find the increased maximum when taken with L/C counter-intuitive. Perhaps it is suggesting that before you go to large doses you would be better to look at the efficacy of L/C for you.
The levodopa equivalent dose factor for rotigotine is 30 (i.e. roughly speaking 1mg of rotigotine gives the same benefit as 30mg of levodopa).
