Has Anyone Switched From Amantidine To GOCOVRI? What Results Did You Experience?

Has Anyone Switched From Amantidine To GOCOVRI? What Results Did You Experience?

I had to go off amantadine because of side effects and the doctor wants me to take GOCOVRI. However, my insurance won't pay for it. Has anyone stopped Amantadine and had better results with GOCOVRI?

Are you using anything else for dyskinesia?

No, I am not taking anything for dyskinesia. I am opposed to taking one drug to fix another drug.

AHA! That's why I was inquiring about GOCOVRI. If I was going to have the same side effects as amantadine, what's the point. One person who answered my question said after 6 months, it didn't work well. Thanks for your answer. Are you taking something for dyskinesia?

I think it came out just this year. I have noticed, in the last few days, that it's not working as well as it did when I started using using it. But, the carbadopa/levadopa isn't working as well either.

I have never heard of this medicine that you are talking about.

I use Gorcorvi. Love it and hate it. Works well with dyskensia but also is very constipating and dehydrating.
