Comment:
I have been dealing with "A-typical" symptoms off and on for 5 years now. About 2.5 years ago, I was told that a sleep study showed early onset of PD and I was given Mirapex (along with a miriad of other drugs). That didn't help at all. A little over 1.5 yrs ago, my Neurologist tried Keppra- an anti seizure medicine (just because we tried everything else.) Keppa was a miracle drug ... Show Full Comment

I am still very active, exercising daily and participating in sports, which, independent of medication, seems to help minimize tremors.

Comment:
I was diagnosised with Parkinson's 3 years ago at age 66. My neurologist started me on Azilect at that time. I experienced small tremors in my left hand. Tremors have increased over time and I can't say that Azilect was effective, I'm not sure if it helped or not??? I am now experiencing more tremors on the left and have started Neupro patches along with the Azilect. Not much improveme ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This was the 1st rx after PD dx taken 1x/day at night. It helped some but didn't control tremors and small hand writing very well. 3months later put on L-dopa 3/day and still take Rasagiline late at night before bedtime. Now the 2 drugs control the tremors & handwriting. I play either tennis, pickleball or golf almost every day like normal. I like the L-dopa taken with Viagra too. All is ... Show Full Comment
