Are you using anything else for dyskinesia?
Can anyone out there give me some feed back on this drug if they use it or tried it. Dr. said it was for shorter OFF times and milder dyskenesia. Also said the drug might be expensive. I have not checked into that yet. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Bean
Went to the doctor yesterday and he put me on new Amantadine drug. I know I mentioned it way back when on this site but it was pretty new then and no one knew too much about it. How about now, anyone taking this? Bean
I had no problem with the lower dosage but when my dosage was raised I had problems. That is my experience.
What extended release med works best?
I know everyone is different, but how long were you on sinemet before you increased your dose?
Are you talking with your doctor?
Hopefully, you're working with your Neurologist. You and your Neurologist will decide whether to increase or decrease your medications. You can take too much also.
I am taking Gocovri for dyiskensias for about 4 years. It's not helping at all. My doctor doubled the dosage from one pill, 137.5 mg. at night to 2 pills at night. I started 2 pills a week ago. I was at least 85 percent better for a week but today it stopped working and the dyskensias are back full force.
Has anyone taken Gocovri?
Is it expensive? My doctor tried to give me a higher dose but it made me too ill. I was throwing up all day. Now îf my insurance would only approve ît! I can't imagine why they are balking unless it is over the cost. I believe it is a newer drug.
That's lower than my cost would be!
