Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It lets me walk almost normally (once I get started) and permitted me to reduce Requip and some its negative effects. It is very expensive and causes my family to quickly reach my max out of pocket prescription costs of $1,500.00. 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.

Nov 24, 2012 (Started Oct 23, 2012)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (headaches, headaches with eye discomfort)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: have only taken azilect for 3 weeks. The headaches can be bad. but the positive side effect is the reduction of tremors which is noticeable by other people. I now need to weigh up if the side effects are worth the reduction of tremors. I will continue taking the tabs another month and then re evaluate how I think I am progressing. Impact on my life at present is not always feeling well 1st thing in the morning I take awhile to 'get going', . I like to keep a routine going I like to think will not give in to the disease.
