  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 250 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was getting too depressed, even though it definitely helped with the myoclonus. I've cut the dosage in half on my own until I see my doctor next week. I'm still blue, but it took it awhile for that to show up after starting on it.
