Hi I just started using the Neupro patch along with My other medicine It is keeping me on a more even on/off time.. I take Rytary every 3 to 31//2 hours but no more than 5 times a day. I take Amantadine 3times for the dyskinesia's. I have been using the patch for almost 2 weeks and it seems I have less" off" times and I can go longer between doeses

@ Ruth Hill - I have been on Neupro patches for several years now - they are brilliant I apply 2 daily (1 x8mg) + 1x 2 mg) - They can irritate the skin but that doesn't bother me. I also take Azilect 1 mg and Sinemet Plus25 mg & Entacapone 200 mg.

Yes I am I have found it helps me sleep but that’s the only difference I have noticed.

I just started the Neupro patch just over a week ago. 2 mg patch is the dose I am on. Currently I also take 1 Azilect, 3 Entacapone and 2 Sinemet three to four times a day. The plan is to increase my Neupro dosage and dial down my Sinemet intake. Already I notice that my off times are more predictable with the patch. I keep changing the location of the patch because it does irritate my skin. It's early but I think the patch will work for me.

I could not take Neupro because of my total lack of impulse control. I turned into Mr Hyde . Be very careful
