    Moderate (for stiffness/spasticity)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 6 mg Daily
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.

    Severe (skin eruptions)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication was withdrawn by the manufacturer...if it hadn't been I would have had to stop anyway...as I delveloped a severe skin reaction to the patch. If the medication had been on a paper or silk binder, instead of the silicone...I don't think this would have been a problem.
