I started taking sinemet (25/100mg) in Aug 2014 and found it helped greatly with my PD symptoms. In Feb 2015 the neurologist added azilect (1mg). I really could not see much difference in the PD symptoms. I was not overly careful with my diet and did not sense any problems until May 2015 when I started having occasional throbbing headache, flushing of the face and neck, pounding heart, and unex ...
