  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Side effects
    Mild (hypnagogic hallucinations, delusional behavior, excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence), hypersexuality, delusional thinking)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 8 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I use the Neupro patch; which requires making sure it is properly "stuck" to your skin and in the ideal locations they give you in their instructions. I enjoy the 24 hour release and no more pills. You should carry a spare when you are learning to apply it. Stays on well in water.
Cost: $200+ monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 6 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Start using it, as low dosage as possible. I truly know that had I taken it early on I would not have the deterioration I have. Since using Neupro, I am 80% better in some ways, and 100% restored in other ways.
Cost: $200+ monthly
