It helped me tremendously with my tremors! I've been on it since August 2015. No bad side effects.
With Requip I was in a study, had good results with shaking. I have been on it since starting the program
Was it in 1990 or 1992 (not sure of date). Not sure so I asked my PD DR since I have doing good upset the apple cart" or "if it ain't broke don't fix it."
I seem to be on a much higher dose than al of you I'm on 18mg slow release in the morning with no other PD meds. I can't say I feel a lot of benefit.
I take Ropinerol, I think this is Requip though not sure. It's an agonist and has worked well for me. I take 1 MG three times per day. I increased it by 1MG last fall and started having visual hallucinations and dropping off to sleep suddenly, but when I went back to 3 doses per day those problems went away.
