Apokyn Injectable -about To Start On It. Anyone Use This Drug?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

My sister is about to start Apokyn which is a rescue drug that is injected( like diabetes’ injectable with small thin needle that doesn’t hurt). It supposed to kick in within 10-20 minutes and last about an hour while other carbidopa-levodopa kicks in ( takes about an hour for that). Anyone have experience with this drug?

Apokyn Injection For Off Time With Tigan® (trimethobenzamide) For Nausea
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello - is anyone on the Apokyn injection program? My husband is supposed to start it this week Apokyn is an injection medication that can be used up to 5 times a day for bad off times. It gives quick and short term relief similar to an inhaler. My husband's dr has also prescribed Tigan® (trimethobenzamide) to start 3 days before the Apokyn for relief of nausea, a side effect of Apokyn. Of course, my husband has a lot of anxiety about starting any new medication including the Tigan®. Any… read more

Anyone Taking Inbrija Inhaler For Off Times?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

End Stage Of Parkinson Help
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

My mum is in the end stage of Parkinsons. The doctors have now taken her off most of the medication she was on as they say that because she has had Parkinsons for almost 22 years the medications do not work as they should. I could do with talking to others that have had or know someone that has had Parkinsons for this length of time. I'm so worried at the moment as last week mum was put on another drug to help keep her calm its called Trazadone but it has made her even worse she has been like a… read more
