Hi, I know ropinirole is discussed to death already, but I seem to have slightly different issue. Atleast couldn’t find similar.
I’m 46, diagnosed 5 years ago. First 4 i did without meds, then started rasagiline and now for three months have also had slow release ropinirole. 2 weeks 2mg, then 4mg. I had pretty bad side effects all summer, nausea, fatigue, sleepiness, sweating, but also many good days. Now after three months all those are gone, but i feel lightheaded and dizzy most of the time and had a scary moment of loosing consciousness a few days ago during a walk. I realised i was heading towards a wall, but managed to keep balance. Kind of like loosing it for a fraction of a second.
This made me think if the med is worth it. I read that both rasagiline and ropinirole may affect blood pressure. Rasagiline never affected me really, but ropinirole has been a struggle. It has slightly improved mobility, but not much. My main symptom is rigidity, which has eased. No tremors, unless i dont eat enough.
Should i still give it time or talk to doctor about an alternative?
I think it makes my legs weaker too.
