What is the right Medicine?
I am 49 years old and just found out I have Parkinson Disease...My doctor has me taking Requip....1 mg 3 times a day ...it seems to be working, some days it does and some days it doesn`t. Will the dosage be increased? How much can you take? If this doesn`t work, what else can I take?
Requip certainly is an appropriate medication and can be titrated to higher doses if required and tolerated. See the Parkinson`s FAQ at this site for other options.
