How should I taper of my 1 mg of ropinirole?
Posted: Sun May 05, 2019 6:09 am
I am seeing my neurologist on Monday and want to ask him to taper me off the 1 mg of ropinirole I am taking nightly as it does not seem to be working and I fear augmentation even though I have been on it less than a month. Unfortunately, I don't have a great deal of confidence in my neurologist so I want to go in prepared with knowledge of best practices in tapering off ropinirole. What is the proper procedure? My tablets are small and seem coated so cutting them in half or less is not going to work. Will I need him to prescribe a lower dose to use to wean me off the 1 mg. How long should it take? Any advice any of you can offer is greatly appreciated.
