Increase Sinemet

I added my new parkinson's medication Requip/Ropinirole (Dopamine ) after taking six months with Sinemet Regular(Levodopa).

The reason : people with parkinson's medication develop fluctuating response"on" and "off " motor states. (the "on" period means response well with medication; "off" period means the medication losing its effect prior to time for the next dose) and the doctor has to increase with your medication or with others to slowdown the disease from it's progression.
