    Severe (skin rash)
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Advice & Tips: The MOST important advice, is that Azilect has some undesirable raections with certain other meds, including, so I am told, certain commonly used anesthetics. The problem I had with it was not that one. My problem was a severe skin reaction. How severe was it? The sores looked just like fire ant bites! Dozens of them!
Side effects: skin rash
