Parkinsons

I have early stage Parkinsons.  Has anyone tolerated one dopamine agonist better than another?  Do you prefer Requip or Mirapex?

I was diagnosed with mild  PD 6 years ago, I have been using the       requip XL for quite a while without any problems. I do take some other medications too, but found the long acting eliminated  the on and off fluctuations, and happily  with my current combination of medications  I have no visible symptoms. For me it made a big difference when I switched from the ropinerole that needs to be taken 3 times a day .Hope this helps you
