Apokyn Injectable -about To Start On It. Anyone Use This Drug?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

My sister is about to start Apokyn which is a rescue drug that is injected( like diabetes’ injectable with small thin needle that doesn’t hurt). It supposed to kick in within 10-20 minutes and last about an hour while other carbidopa-levodopa kicks in ( takes about an hour for that). Anyone have experience with this drug?

I wish that kynmobi was still available so my husband is taking Apokyn.
If anyone has any extra, I would be happy to purchase it from them
I live in Atlanta
Please let us know. Thanks

What Do You Do When The Highest Level Of Timed-release Rytary Stops Working As Well?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Off times becoming an issue for the first time in 10 years. On the highest mg of timed-release retry 3x's per day. Solutions that have worked to ease sudden appearance of off-times/freezing/stiffness? Thanks.

Monique, contact your Neurologist. I assume he/she prescribed the Rytary.
Always ask your doctor first.

Rytary/ Carvadopa/levadopa
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone else take rytary and carvadopa/levadopa at the same time. I was in the ER because the medication reaction and they said it was because I was taking these 2 meds together. Just wondered if anyone else is on that combination?

Good old C/L 4x a day with C/L er at night

The drug that helps the stomach to digest faster conflicts with PD C/l. Is there another drug that does work?

Rytary
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband has been taking Rytary for about a year. It helps with tremors but now I'm not sure if the behavioral issues he's having - suspicious, agitation, disorganized thinking, are a side effect of too much medication, or the advancement of the disease. The dr thinks the latter and wants to prescribe Clozapine (an anti-psychosis drug).

At times he is very difficult to deal with as his thinking and conclusions are totally illogical even if you try to explain. Would appreciate any feedback.

Bebeapples - thanks for the info on Rytary. I have read some of that about side effects. We worry if he goes back on Sinemet he'll get very little relief. Before he took it and his off time was awful… read more

Do I Have Parkinsons Or Not?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

One neurologist says I have Parkinson's and put me on Sinemet. Another neurologist from the same office says that I don't have it and thinks my neck, lower back and anxiety are what is causing problem's with my shaking and my walking.

My question is once I'm off the meds will I know whether I have the Parkinson's or not? If my symptoms stay the same and don't get… read more
