Your healthcare provider will determine your Requip XL dosage based on how you respond to the medication, other medications you are already taking, and other factors. Requip XL comes in tablet form and is taken once a day. Typically, the recommended starting dose of Requip XL is 2 mg once daily. Your healthcare provider can slowly increase this dose to a maximum of 24 mg per day.

An Introduction to Requip XL Dosage

The dose of Requip® XL (ropinirole XL) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:

As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
