Eldepryl

My loved one has been taking Selegiline for two years, as an add-on to Sinemet. Recently his neurologist prescribed Lexapro. He took it for a week and was not doing well at all.

My bottom lip is swollen & cracked, but it's because I fell full weight into my armoire d/t my poor sense of balance! Had a nice shiner, too.. No fun, this P.D. If it isn't one thing it's another!
