Re: tapering off ropinirole

The movement disorder specialist suggested upping your ropinerole to 1.5 mg.!! Oh dear, another specialist who needs educated.
How good to know that you were well informed on the usage of ropinerole.

Re: Unhappy

I fully understand the empty nest syndrome, all of our adult children now have their own lives and half of them are spread across the globe. When I am with those grandchildren who live nearby it gently increases the absence of those who are across the seas. A saying I always remember is --- We will ...

Re: Kava?

I have never used this and It is illegal here in the UK.
I'd imagine it produces calmness but would do research on how it may affect the organs or indeed interact with prescribed medication.

Re: Infusion Update
