Hi to all,
Hope you are all keeping as well as possible? Not made contact for a while really missed the chats on here.
I wanted to ask for any advice, my OH has been taking Stavelo for about 6 months now, 2 in the morning, 1 in the afternoon, and 1 at night + 1 azilect at night (which was added 3months ago) he has been ok and has had no bad side effects to speak about. His neuro has just prescribed an additional drug patches of rotigotine. He has to apply these patches of 2mg each morning for 2 weeks - then change to 4mg patches for another 2 weeks - then onto 6mg patches thereafter. The GP dispensary has only allowed him the 2mg patches and say he will have to come back in 2 weeks for the 4mg patches then same again 2 weeks later for the 6mg patches. The trip to the GP is a 10 mile trip, and to have to keep going back and forth is an absolute pain, so what is the reason for this? is this drug very dangerous? are the side effects really bad? the pharmacist asked my husband is your Neuro stopping some of your other meds before starting Rotigotine? which the answer is no! why would this be asked? my OH is really quite scared of starting Rotigotine now, seen and heard so much gossip about it, any experience or knowledge would be greatly appreciated, thanks all, love holsx
