Discussions that mention requip

Digestive Disorders board

Interesting reply.

I did try mirapex, but it caused augmentation almost immediately. Another dopamine agonist caused me to pass out at 5:00 in the morning on the first [and only!] dose! Have not tried barbituates. A sleep specialist mentioned a dopamine agonist patch, that, theoretically, would be less likely to cause augmentation because the med is delivered continuously 24/7. Theoretically. Not enough testing yet. Requip did start to work I think the first time the doctor had me increase the dosage. But after only 1 night that I actually slept through the night [ ! ] augmentation kicked in.

Let's see what my doctor suggests now . . .
