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?

How To Stop Taking Benztropine and risperidal without withdrals

Taking one in the morning along with two risperidal and one in the evening with two risperidal ## If you want to get off of these medications in the safest manner, I would first recommend that you seek more personalized advice from your doctor who knows your medical history and other factors that should be taken into consideration before tapering. Your doctor may lower the dosage of both medications or even suggest taking each pill in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them. I hope this helps! ## I have been taking 3 tablets in the morning and 1 1/4 in the afternoon. I tried to cut off the Dosage 1/4 per week ( as per doctor ) recommendation. But ...

whats shelf life of carbi levodopa 25 100

what is the shelf like of carbi/levodopa 25/100 arlene ## Hello, Arlene! How are you? If they are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, tablets expire one year from the date they were dispensed to you, because they are then exposed to the elements that cause degradation. If they are in the originally factory sealed bottle, they are usually good for at least 3 years, from the date of sealing. This medication is most commonly used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, hypotension and vivid dreams. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi , now that Synaptic Forte is no longer available. Is there a replacement that is as good as Synaptic. Thanks
