Advice & Tips: Although my neuro said that I would see immediate results, it was nearly 2 weeks before I saw anysignificant results. Before the 2 weeks, my progress on Azilect was uneven. My symptoms would get better and then worse than before. It has now been 4 weeks. My progress still seems uneven/spotty.I believe that there is room for improvement. It is almost like Azilect is working, but not all the way.

Advice & Tips: It lets me walk almost normally (once I get started) and permitted me to reduce Requip and some its negative effects.

So, for most of the year there is no cost to me, because my prescription insurance picks up all cost after we reach the Max.
