  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2 x 25 mg-200 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It makes the symptons of Parkinson go away and gives one a whole new lease on life. I had it with chemo treatment and for four years thought it was the chemo and arthristis and spinal stenosis, etc., stalevo made all the side effects go away. I pray it doesn't wear off or I become conditioned to it. At 76 now it really doesn't matter, but sure has made my life so much better.
Cost: < $25 monthly
