I have found Azilect to be effective in stopping some of my symptoms including itching of scalp, loss of energy, and speech changes. I still have a left-sided tremor,but it is remaining stable. I have been taking Azilect since last November, and got it from a neurologist. I am still working as a cashier.

It took away my tremors, handwriting returned to normal, hallucinations are gone, I have not fallen for a very long time. I do not appear to have PD. It works so well for me.
