I am no expert being fairly newly diagnosed, but I have had no problems with ropinerole. I am currently on 10mg slow release ropinerole. When they first put me on ropinerole I was on the 3 x daily dose and that was horrendous, nausea, sickness, tiredness etc.I ended up by not taking it s being carer to my young adult daughter, I just could ot have those problems 3 times a day. Tthis resolved itself as soon as I was changed to the slow release dose.
I was interested in you saying you have a stiff right arm, is this the side of your parkinsons? I am getting immense pain and stiffness in my left arm, not helped maybe by me packing the house up for a move to a bungalow to help my daughter. Has the gp explained what this stiffness is and do you take anything for it?
