  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Improve mobility)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 4 mg/24 hr Daily
Advice & Tips: i take the Neupro patch to fill the gaps or off periods that i got with Stalevo 3x per day just one hour before the next Stalevo. it works. i can do more and feel lots stronger so it supports and enforces the Stalevo to work better. they work well together. the one thing with Neupro is to know where to put the patch. it has to be a seperate place for 14 days. the first patch was 2mg but then i noticed the 4mg is bigger in size so it takes more space. also i have found to use 3M tegaderm to cover the patch to make sure it stays to the skin. the first day it let go in the corners and i happened to be in a hospital where they put the 3M tegaderm on top of it. works like a charm and no problems of the patch letting go. it also is water protecting.
