  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This survey doesn't account for the way i take L-dopa. I started out at 1 tablet every 6 hours. Now I am at 0.75 tablet every 4 hours. So this means i am taking a smaller dose at more frequent intervals as Parkinson's progresses. If I take more than needed, the dyskinesia starts. If I go too long without a dose (usually sitting at work or computer), forget to take it, hand tremor starts.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Dyskinesia

  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 4.5 x 25 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: After 5-1/2 years med-free, I finally started on levodopa. The symptoms of PD have either gone away (constipation, stooped posture, difficulty walking) or been greatly mitigated (tremor). Best of all, it has enabled me to take my fitness to a new and much higher level. Levodopa has given me my life back.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
