Xadago

Xadago

Any updates regarding xadago and azilect. Does anyone know how you go about coming off azilect. Can you cut it down. I am worried about withdrawal symptoms if I just stop taking it as Doctor advised. Then wait a week and start xadago. My medication is dropping out quickly at the moment and I am experiencing terrible "off" times. Freezing, stiff feet and legs, trouble breathing and feeling terrified, panic. Any comments would be appreciated. Feeling helpless.

Has Anyone Looked Into 2 New Drugs For Off Periods --------------- Safinamide And Inbrijo ??

Has Anyone Looked Into 2 New Drugs For Off Periods --------------- Safinamide And Inbrijo ??

Safinamide , generic for Xadago (which sells for $950 /month, w/o insurance) i only found the Xadago. The Inbrijo is a nose spray, which I didn't find anywhere! My doctor prescribed them for me! They could be tthe answer to the misable off periods! If you don't have off periods now, you probably will later! To make it later than sooner, take as little levadopa as possible, to avoid the resistance to the levadopa. Once your totally… read more

Does Anyone Take The New Drug Xadago?

Does Anyone Take The New Drug Xadago?

Hi all, just went to the doctor today and he has me trying out a new drug which prolongs the use of taking the carbidopa/Levo. Instead of me taking it every two hours, this drug MIGHT help me space it out to every 3 or 4 hours. We shall see. Let me know if anyone has tried it yet, any side effects? It is a once a day pill. It starts out at 50 mg, for one week, then you up it to 100 mgs. Thanks Bean
