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.
