We use Apokyn as needed for off times. Our PD meds include Rytary, Sinemet, and Amantadine @ 4 hour intervals (5am-9pm). Apokyn is applied into the stomach with a needle and we consider it a quick start. At this time, it is very helpful but does increase dyskinesia (dancing motion) some times. Dyskinesia increases the risk of falls. We continue to work with the neurologist to balance the meds which is important.
I'M New at this, too. My Dr. just gave me the diagnosis and it's scary.
Is a type of morphine drug like a opiate of some sort? I'm not sure I've I've never heard of it
New at this but not heard of it
