Is Anyone On Duopa Through The PegJ Tube And How Would You Rate Effectiveness.

Is Anyone On Duopa Through The PegJ Tube And How Would You Rate Effectiveness.

My husband is 71 and was diagnosed with PD 11 years ago. Neuro now has recommended Duopa and insertion of PegJ tube with pump. He has so many ON and OFF times during one day that it makes it almost impossible to plan on leaving the house. He currently takes Stalevo 75mg 5 times a day along with Azilect and Ropinerole. If anyone is on Duopa, how long did it take to titrate correct dose to stop ON and OFF episodes? We live in North GA.
