Vivid Dreams Are Sometimes A Side Effect Of Requip/ropinirole

Vivid Dreams Are Sometimes A Side Effect Of Requip/ropinirole

Quite often Parkies report thrashing or fighting in their dreams and acting this out while sleeping, so their partner must sleep elsewhere.
But sometimes those vivid dreams are powerful and life-confirming.
Tell me about your dreams -

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member - I apologize for using the term "Parkies" if you really don't like it. I suppose the politically correct term is PWP (People With Parkinson's, or Person With Parkinson's). I like "Parkies" because to me it minimizes the disease, & anything I can do to minimize PD for myself & for others, I will do. To me PWP seems impersonal, but I will be happy to use it on MPT as long as you & I are both members, which hopefully will be a good, long time!

They are buggers - at least for everyone else! Or perhaps dangerous would be more accurate.

My oldest son used to bring exotic animals when he was a teenager. He brought home snakes, spiders, lizards, and and a gecko that would stand on his hind legs.

I walked into his basement bedroom one day and noted that the snake he kept in an aquarium was not in his aquarium. I inquired, as to the location of said snake. He said, as nonchalantly as could be, “it got out.” I said “then find it. He said “ that was two weeks ago.” Then he said: “it’s a water snake. It’s long gone it headed for water.”

I was not impressed. Shortly after that he moved out.

I wonder if dreams might be med related; at least to some extent. I dreamed a while back that someone had stolen my Fender Telecaster. It is a valuable guitar; not to mention, I absolutely love that guitar. I chased the culprit, wrestled him for guitar. I even dreamed of being in court, only I was dead. My family was prosecuting the suspect; whom I did know. In the morning, I woke completely worn out from running around all night in my sleep. I looked across the room, and there she was sitting just as if nothing had happened. For a minute or so, I was a little angry at the guitar
