Unfortunatly, I was unable to stop taking the Dopamine Agonist Requip (Ropinerole). Parkinson's has many symptoms that vary from person to person; mine would not allow me to stop taking it.
I asked to go back on this unaware that it was not the only option. It brought us to extreme finacial distress before I found out differently.
After being taken off the Ropinerole, there was an
immediate change; now the thought of gambling sickens me.
Mirapex is another Dopamine Agonist in which class action lawsuits have been filed due its role in causing Compulsive Gambling.
