Went to the doctor yesterday and he put me on new Amantadine drug. I know I mentioned it way back when on this site but it was pretty new then and no one knew too much about it. How about now, anyone taking this? Bean
I take Amantadine 100mg 3/day plus Rasagiline 1/day and a Neupro 6mg patch. I do not take C Carbadopa/Levadopa because I had a severe allergic reaction to Sinemet after my second dose. My symptoms are fairly well controlled except for pain.
I would experience episodes of light headed and hyperventilating. It would just take me down
I tried it but it made me very sick. I was on it for a month
I have been on Gocovri since February of this year, it has helped me with my dyskinesia quite a bit. I started with 1 capsule for 1 week then 2 after that.. Well, 2 was too much dosage for me so I went back to 1 capsule before bed time. Too much made me hallucinate to where I was seeing water bubbling out of the floor, walls and every where or cobwebs dangling from the ceiling, it was weird.
I admitted myself to the the rehab hospital, in Ogden UT, they specialize in PD. I was there for 3 weeks because Dyskinesia was intolerable. The Therapists were great, but the doctors did not know what to do with me. The tremors were disabling, I remember sitting in a chair just shaking not being able to move just shake. This is when I told them that a boxing buddy was taking Entacapone 200 mg along with her carbidopa-levodopa 25-100 mg and to amanadine 100 mg at 6:00 a.m. and at noon. This regiment has worked since. I have off times just before y next dose and my neurologist tried to adjust my doses of carb/lev taking more often, 1every 2 hours instead of 1 every 3 hours but the Dyskinesia came back throwing my gate off again. I am due for my noon pills now its 11:45 and am swaying from side to side with the Dyskinesia, not horribly though. I get up early around 4:00 a.m. and I shake some then, no meds till 6. and I do meditation and breathing, and this morning I was able to relax my tremor in my foot and meditate for 20 more min before my med at 6:00, maybe a freak accident i don't know yet. But the meds are a guessing game everyone is different.
