Valium works for me some. I take 5mg. I know it's an addictive drug, but it helps me do things. I'm right handed and my right hand is affected by PD

I Am Trying To Find Someone Who Has Been Taking Azilect For Over 5 Years And If They Feel It Has Helped With The Slowing Of Parkisons.

I Am Trying To Find Someone Who Has Been Taking Azilect For Over 5 Years And If They Feel It Has Helped With The Slowing Of Parkisons.

There is no actual proof that azilect actually does slow the progression of Parkinsons and it hasn't been used for very many years so I am trying to find someone who has taken it for several years. It is a gamble especially with the cost.

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member It would be best to go through the four-week session with a certified physical therapist. It is not online. You can purchase a DVD and use it for follow-up on your own. I… read more

Does Anyone Take Azelect And Did You Find Discount?

Does Anyone Take Azelect And Did You Find Discount?

I went to see a new neurologist who recommended Azelect and said most of her patients improve on this drug. I am on Medicare and the cost per month over $800. Has anyone tried this drug and had success with it? Do you know if the drug company has a discount program? My old neurologist told me that this drug has not been scientifically proven to be neuro-protective Any info or experience would be helpful.

If anyone is paying an outrages price for Azilect (I was paying $375 for three months), I just refilled mine and the generic brand is now available in the USA. I paid $25.00 for a three month supply of Rasagiline (this is the generic brand.) About time!!!!

How Soon After Diagnosis Did You Start Medication For Parkinson's?

I am being referred to a neurologist for symptoms of Parkinson's. I am very sensitive to medications and would like to delay starting meds if possible. Right now I only have a slight tremor and a little trouble with balance. I don't want to feel worse from medication.

My husband and daughter told me so many times about my hand tremors. Then my head started to shake. This was when I went to the Neurologist and he put me on meds right away.

So far I haven’t met anyone else with PD who does.

That’s the sort of thing l mean. People find it hard to understand what I’m saying if I cry at the same time. Sometimes l start to laugh for no apparent reason

Is it safe to take more than 1 mg of Azilect if I have a fairly stable HBP level ?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member

Assuming your Neurologist prescribed this medication why don't you ask them? They're the professionals. We are NOT!

How Does Donut Hole Change Meds Cost

How Does Donut Hole Change Meds Cost

example:"Yes, our co-pay is very high (about $46.00 a month) but when my husband hits the Donut Hole it's much worse. We order elsewhere. $300.00 for a 30 day supply is to ridiculous, which we cannot afford. Can get 50 for $160 elsewhere. Tried to take him off of it because of the cost but his tremors got worse.He has been on Azilect ever since he was diagnosed in 2010"
