Neupro Patch coming back on market…

I have been waiting since the time I was diagnosed for this drug to come back on the market…
I was told that this drug would be 'right' for me…..

After my recent DATscan results and my research into what the test results mean, coupled with the clinical trials that were done and the results in the past with dopamine reduction in the areas where I have reduce uptake, and the physical manifestations that the drug supposively works on…..

it looks like this will be a good fit……

here is a link….

anyone else use or have any experience with this drug?

The PD community has been waiting a long time for this drug to be put back on the market. The patch is super-convenient.

Dr. Boeve wants Coy on this drug. Two other drugs have to be worked into Coy's regimen first, so maybe by the time we're ready the patches will be too. Looking forward to this!

My husband was put on the Neuro Patch to help with his parkinson's problems. He wore the patch for about 18 hours and was in a catatonic state for 21/2 days. So now we are just having to cope with the problem of no meds. that work for him for this particular problem. Hope others don't have this problem.
