FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: REQUIP

User Comments:


For Parkinson’s Disease “Diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinsons Disease in the fall of 2009 @ the age of 47, I was prescribed the drug Requip. God, family, & friends were the most important things in my life prior to taking the medicine. I was very conservative with my $ and spent approximately a total of $10 on the lottery & made 2 trips to a Casino spending $20 in my lifetime. After taking this medication for approximately 3 months in the fall of 2009, I developed an obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) with scratch off lottery tickets & slot machines. To make a long story short, after risking loosing my family, soul, friends and losing hundreds of thousands of dollars, the decision to take Requip was a mistake. Compulsive gambling is a listed side effect.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “Don’t take this for RLS. It causes augmentation. Symptoms get better in the beginning, then eventually you need more Requip to make RLS go away. Eventually, the meds stop working altogether and RLS is out of control, worse than before you stated meds. You try to come off the meds and RLS gets even worse.This is very common and occurs in 70-80% of everyone on Requip.Your doctor will likely not understand and/or think you’re crazy.Find another doctor.The solution is to get off the dopamine drugs like Requip. Get on a different class of meds, like Gabapentin, Horizant, or Lyrica. Checkout RLS.org for help.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “I’ve RLS for about 5 years. I was on Nupro for about a year and it worked well until the last month, then it was like it made it worse. I’ve been on Requip for almost 2 years and have had to up my dose a couple of times. I now take Requip ER in the morning around 11:00am, and take a 2mg pill at 8:00 pm and sleep through most nights.”
