Advice & Tips
I started with Stalevo 100 tabs 3 times a day.
When I found out all pill sizes cost the same, I went to 1/2 Stalevo 150 tab 3 times a day.
Now I take 1/2 Stalevo 150 tab 2 or 3 times a day depending upon activity and stress.
I take 1mg Azelect every morning.
My shakes are reasonably well controlled with this routine but I have stiffness after I sit or drive for any time.
I like to walk and hike but am now recovering from torn knee meniscus and "scope" knee surgery. I walk like an old man with weak legs 4 weeks after surgery. Recovery period is supposed to be 6 weeks but I expect 6months of leg strengthening exercise is needed to fully recover.
At this time the side effects (loss of appetite, dizzyness and drymouth) outweighed the benefits (better arm swing and reduction of leg tremor). I will wait until the benefits are greater. I am doing well with structured exercise classes specifically designed for PD patients.
