Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I am currently taking Azilect 1mg every morning. I have now been reduced to taking Stalevo 100mg every four hours instead of every 3 1/2 hours, and I have pushed myself just a few times to taking Stalevo 100mg once in a 5 hour period. Azilect has been a great drug for me. I have slowly been able to drop the amount of Stalevo and stretch my "on" time. Stalevo and Azilect together have given me better mobility and I thank God every day for these two drugs because I can't tolerate a lot of other drugs like Mirapex and Requip.
