Sorry to gatecrash your post... I am on Neupro - have gone from 2 mg to 4 mg and tomorrow I'll start 6 mg after a terrible experience on ropinirole (the XL version wasn't absorbing; the instant release made me constantly sick). Happy to report I haven't been sick once since starting Neupro, only some v mild nausea and uncomfortable bloating. But that's probably because I'm keeping food down again finally!
The 6 mg patch looks big, so I'm not looking forward to that. Dread to think about the 8. It's worth the itchiness / discomfort taking them off, though, as I think I'm seeing a difference. I'm 30 years old and have been dx for 8 months now, and while I don't doubt that 'normal' is something I'll never feel again, I'm getting a bit of my old self back, finally. Well, until this bloomin' patch starts itching me, which serves as a regular reminder...
I'd love to hear from others who are on this.
