Hi I was on ropinirole for a year.It seemed like my RLS got worser .So my DR. up it to 2mg aday after one week of 1 1/5.My hair has started falling out .So I stopped it once talking to DR.. My question is will my hair grow back?
I'm approaching 60-years-old... I was thrilled to find Requip for my restless leg... but also think it may be harsh on my skin and the source of horrid dry scalp. I'm joining the forum to see if others see the same side effects.
