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.
