Azilect& dopamine agonists


#1
Hi Every one I am looking for advice on dopamine patches when taken with Azilect(rasaline) been recently to see my consultant who has suggested i might like to consider the D A patches ,the decision lies with me, I have been diagnosed nearly 3yrs can still do everything, except walk at normal pace ,I have read the pd treatment book it is useful, but would be better if i could read first hand from anyone who has used it.
thanks for comments in the past, always nice to keep in touch
regards to all Marie.

Hi Marie,

I found the Dopamine Agonists very good at helping me to walk at a 'normal' pace again.

I've searched a couple of links out directing you to relevant forum posts

hi marie, good for you they say exercise is good for pd i have,nt been on the wii for ages i usually go on the sports with my youngest son, i went swimming for the first time in about 6 yrs the other week i could hardly walk the next day felt like i had been to the gym every one at work was laughing at me but i did enjoy it so i suppose it was worth it you keep doing what you enjoy and i hope the meds are ok.sue.

Hi Sue,hope your ok now after your swimming experience.
Having talked to pd nurse I have decided to stick with azilect & say No to D+A.
