Comment:
I have mild Parkinsons now. Diagnosed 11/07.Take Cardidopa & Azilect. Wanted to stop Azilect after taking for over a year because of food restrictions. Stopped taking Azilect for 2 weeks and developed leg jerks after being off it for 2 weeks. Started taking Azilect again and after approximately a month the leg jerks have disappeared.

This has been a significantly beneficial treatment with no obvious side-effects.

I have been diagnosed with Parkinson 4 months ago. I am taking 1 mg Azilect and 4 mg Requip. My wife tells me that I have less tremors when I sleep. Side symptoms are bad. I am lethargic and sleepy all the time, have nausea, and vivid dreams that interfere with my sleep. I am not sure if these drugs improves my shakiness and stiffness symptoms.
