I have just started on Neupro, for RLS actually, and wondered what others have experienced in the way of compulsive behaviour problems.
My first dopamine agonist, Parlodel, was a total disaster…compulsive gambling, crazy business ideas,impulsive risk taking and addiction to soft porn. Ropinirole was not much better. So hoping Neupro will be better. 2mg has already made a bit of an improvement in RLS and hoping to increase to 3mg. Don’t want these compulsion side affects
