I avoid sleep medications because I still work alot and my job requi ... Show Full Comment

    Just like another earlier user, my Parkinson's aggravated after Rasagiline, with lower limb freezing, and a perennial fear of falling, taking over me ever since the dose was titrated up to 1 mg/day.

    switching from selegeline to rasegeline has been an improvement taking 45 days for results. I'm concerned about all the foods that are warned against eating containing tyramine.. many of them are the "healthy" items included in our diet. High Blood pressure medication is also a daily prescription but no mention of this interaction was suggested or warned. After 2 strokes in a years ... Show Full Comment
