I have been on Ropinorole (Requip XL) for a while now. I have never been comfortable taking it as my BP drops off immediately afterwards making me dizzy until my BP recovers later in the day. My Parkinson's Nurse (PD) suggested drinking a lot more water and taking salt. My PD nurse is quite adamant I should not reduce the dosage or stop taking Requip XL. My consultant is of similar opinion. They both want me to increase my dosage which I am reluctant to do. I would like to stop taking ropinorole altogether.
Has anyone else had a similar experience with Requip XL, if so what did you do?
