He gave me a trial of the Neupro patch. I was interested in Comtan thinking this is what I would need. Opinions?
Additionally anyone on the patch? How is it doing for you? Any side effects, do I need to change the site that I wear it at?
Thanks as always,
Hello Jim, I use Neupro from about two years. It doesn't me me any problems. Only the first time, it gave me some little problem, a little lowering of blood pressure, but at that time, I didn't take any meds, yet. I apply it on top of the legs or arms. It's better to cut hair in the application area. I apply the patch on the same side, again, even after two days, as long as the skin isn't still slightly irritated. Neupro works very well for me, its effect is higher than almost ldopa. For which concern Stalevo, I used it for almost a year, but my new neurologist took me off it, because he told me that at this stage of my illness, is better to use Neupro and Madopar only, Stalevo later on.
