Oct 23, 2010 (Started Jan 30, 2006)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Parkinson's Disease)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 3 x 12.5 mg-200 mg-50 mg Daily
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.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
