Has anyone seen a marked improvement in your PD symptoms?

That is good news. Has it helped your tremors?

My tremors are pretty minor - would they be worse without Requip? I don't know because while I've missed doses, I haven't gone off of it in the two years. It does help with the leg stiffness.

You are absolutely correct; it does help with leg problems especially toe stiffness and pain. I am not sure if anything helps tremors. And how do you account for the fact that somedays the tremors are really strong and last all day and somedays they are hardly noticeable at all? You begin to wonder
if all this medication that we take means anything at all.
