When I was diagnosed with restless leg syndrome, I was put on requip, for a time, and it was wonderful:) Then my insurance refused to pay for it and I was put on ropinerole 3 times a day. It is not working well at all:( I am 71, my husband is 76, we live on a fixed (broken) income and could use a little help getting the requip. Can you help? Here's thanking you in advance, even if you cannot(^+^) Dorothy
GlaxoSmithKline is the manufacturer of the brand name Requip. The generic ropinerole is manufactured by several different pharmaceutical companies.
If you would like to get the Requip from the GSK manufacturer - try here for their patient assistance program. http://www.gskforyou.com/
Also this is a website for many different medications but they can all save you tons of money when it comes to needing a Brand only medication.
This is specifically for Requip.
Good luck - I hope you can find your medication fast.
Requip is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.
