Rotigotine patches 3mg/24 hours

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been using Rotigotine patches for about a year now and they have changed my life.  After 15 years I have returned to work, I can go to the cinema and travel by aeroplane.  I have heard that they may no longer be available on the NHS.  Has anybody else heard this?

    I still have 2mg Rotigotine patches as a repeat prescription but no longer use them. They have become ineffective and when I increased the dose I passed out and fell badly. I experienced the same thing with Ropinorole and so dare not take more than a low dosage. Dopamine agonists no longer work for me so I am using Tramadol (Opioid) which also is becoming ineffective. Getting quite desperate but at least it is only night time for me (at the moment!).

    Dear Sashalou

    Please read the posts in the conversation "RLS and Diet"   There is a diet developed by a University and freely available that has given me enormous relief and similarly helped others.   I suggest you read about it and give it a try.

    Tell me if you have any problems getting the necessary help you need with it.
