For Parkinson's Disease "Requip has given me 4 years of regained fine motor skills, word retrieval and executive functioning. It has been the only medicine I have taken for my parkinson 's disease. The disease marches on, but I can drive, work with young children and take care of myself. I have been blessed, even though each day I can feel the loss of automaticity and coordination. Requip has caused narcolepsy and visual hallucinations that have been quite unique, not scary!"

For Periodic Limb Movement Disorder "The game changer for me is the slow release XL, much less side effects. I do sometimes top up with 1mg of normal Ropinarole before bed, and then feel the side affects. Would recommend 4mg XL slow release for RLS"

For Periodic Limb Movement Disorder "I have been taking Requip XL (ropinirole) for about 4 years now and it has helped me tremendously. I take it at night so that I can go to sleep, otherwise, the RLS tends to keep me wide awake for a long time. Once I do take the medication, I give it about 15 minutes and then it makes it where I can lay down and go on to sleep. If I did not have this, I would not be able to sleep at all. The only thing I am experiencing right now, is that I had to have total knee replacement, and with this surgery, I do seem to be having more spasms from the surgery, so it is taking longer to take effect, than normal, otherwise, I have not had any issues."
