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?

There are many reasons not to use kynmobi. The price alone being the first, at nearly $500 per dose. The drug is also highly addictive. Used only for a short term like a pain reliever.

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. So he will be taking me off the Sinemet gradually to see if he can tell what my problem really is. I've also had other tests. 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
