Discussions that mention requip

Neuromuscular Diseases board


Your thread caught my attention on my way to the spinal board.

I saw a physiatrist for spasticity after a cervical laminectomy and she prescribed Baclofen - it helped a bit, but slowed my body to a crawl. Everyone is different, but just giving a heads up.

I then saw a motion specialist (neurologist) who, after I got off the Baclofen, diagnosed Parkinson's (I'm 50) - I still think the problem is c-spine stenosis and not PD, but a PD drug, Requip, in a small dose - 1mg 3x/day has helped me quite a bit. The purpose of Requip is to help the body make more natural dopamine so it makes sense that it could help in either case.
