Advice & Tips: Once a week, I can walk for about half an hour before taking my medication. This began shortly after I started Mirapex. I stopped Amantadine and Azilect prior to hernia surgery. After surgery, I resumed the Azilect but not the Amantadine, and could not do my weekly walk without medication. Adding the Amantadine fixed that.
