Payless says Mylan is no longer making this generic Sinemet cr 25/100 tab. I cannot use Sun manufacturing company. I need help. I take 1 purple pill that has 88 on one side and Mylan on the other every 3 hours. I am 83 with advanced Parkinson's. ## Have you spoken to your doctor about the problem?

Requip for RLS 3 mg

Hello again Requip Forum: I have asked questions before on this forum (Requip changed from 2 mg to 4 mg - and I was very sick). Well, the doc changed me to 3 mg. Not sick anymore, guess the 4 mg was just to strong for me. Anyways, it's great the 3 mg does not make me sick but good grief, I am wide awake at 2:00 a.m. because the drug has worn off. Does Requip make a controlled release by chance? I am so very frustrated - it seems I am constantly switching strengths and each strenth is short lived. Now is this something that I am just going to have to deal with. ## I am wondering about the sleep thing. I take Requip for RLS and it helps till I wake up wide awake and cant fall back to sleep, at 130am I am ready to start the day and thats not good! Other than that I think it does great!...

how do you discontinue mirpex XL

I have been taking it for several years. Just figured out is has been causing other health issues. Doc said stop mirpex start requip problems with requip stop after 3days. Stop everything. not sleeping panic attacks etc. should it be tapered? ## I'm assuming your doctor expect you to just replace Mirapex with Requip, which likely means a taper wasn't necessary. Did you contact them, before stopping the Requip? A taper might be required, since you've been on one of these types of medications for several years. The issues you've described can be withdrawal effects, along with headache, nausea, and diarrhea. What issues were you experiencing that made you stop the Requip so fast?

What is a small white oval flat pill with p7 on it?
