Rytary For Smoothing Out Dyskinesia?

Rytary For Smoothing Out Dyskinesia?

Does anyone take Rytary to smooth out instances of dyskinesia? Did you have more side effects? My doctor said I would feel weird on it.

I was having meds increased on a regular basis and ended with movement 24/7 and got 0 hours of sleep over 7 days! Ended in hospital where they had to knock me out to get some rest then restarte my meds carefully changing the dosages until they and I felt the rig combination for me! It was a terribly painful and exhausting experience and took me months to get back to my physical exercise program-deep tissue massage helpe a lot!

I take rytary as my overnight dose since I am taking carba/leva 4 times during the daytime hours. I have only been taking PD meds for the last two months since my official medical diagnosis of having PD. So far I have had no bad effects. Looking back over the years I have had many of the symptoms of PD going back at least 15 years just, not as many of symptoms or as severe as now.

Well, don't give up on it. Everyone's different and maybe you will tolerate it better than I did. It does work on the dyskinesia.
