Anyone Taking Inbrija Inhaler For Off Times?

Anyone Taking Inbrija Inhaler For Off Times?

My husband's neurologist just prescribed the Inbrijia inhaler to help with "off" times. He was taking the Apokyn injection as needed but it caused orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure) and it he passed out (Apoykyn is not like levodopa but similar to Miralax). Inbrijia is a levodopa powder that goes into a rescue inhaler for those bad "off" times. He hasn't started it yet but was wondering if anyone has had experience with this new medication. Thanks.
