Advice & Tips: I had been on the patch for about 3 months when the FDA took it off of the market. my dr and i agreed that because it was helping me with the rigidity in my arm and legs that i would continue using it because he had sample patches that I could use until they expired in April 2009. i am now on Requip XL 6mg. I am starting my 3rd week on the Requip next week i will be up to 8 mg.we are hoping that it does some of the same things that the Neupro patch did for me.
