I was diagnosed with PD October last year, I started on Azilect straight away.
I had my follow up on Wednesday this week with my neurologist and it was decided that I would go on to Madopar, three times a day at the lowest dose, I was dead against taking any more drugs but having had a good chat with the Dr, I decided that I would try them.
There are side effects to all drugs, but to be honest, I don't read about them, I just take the pills and see how I go, not saying that is right but it works for me.
I was scared when I first got diagnosed and thought that, that was it, game over, but, that is not the case.
Please do not let this get you down, there is a lot of help and support and medications, don't be afraid to try them.
I will let you know how I get on with them, but,everyone is different, so what works for me may not work for you.
I too get down and worry about the future and how this disease will change my life but lets live for today and try not too think too far ahead.
