Has Anyone Switched From Amantidine To GOCOVRI? What Results Did You Experience?

Has Anyone Switched From Amantidine To GOCOVRI? What Results Did You Experience?

I had to go off amantadine because of side effects and the doctor wants me to take GOCOVRI. However, my insurance won't pay for it. Has anyone stopped Amantadine and had better results with GOCOVRI?

Are you using anything else for dyskinesia?

I use Gorcorvi. Love it and hate it. Works well with dyskensia but also is very constipating and dehydrating.
