  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Initially I felt an improvement in my balance and my gait. Neverteless, I had a fall in April. Still don't know just what happened...only that I was suddenly falling through space toward a door jamb. No damage done. I developed splotchy, purple, blood-shot ankles and went off the Amantadine (200 mg/day) This was a few weeks after being started on Ropinirole. (.50 mg 3 times a day). Ankles seem to be clearing up.
