On a positive note:
Diagnosed 4 yrs, 57male
Initial problems of stiffness, rigidity, slow movement, speech, expression, handwriting, sense of smell gone etc controlled with sinemet 25/100 x4 ropinorole 8mg x1 entacapone 200mg x3, citalopram 20mg x1.
Troublesome right arm tremor, but significant and most intrusive problem has been losing the ability to walk without falling freezing, stalling shuffling overbalancing etc etc
Then along came 1mg daily of Rasagiline and bingo - in 3 weeks i started to walk a bit around the house, straightened up and dont overbalance in groups of people / supermarket aisles etc. Friends have been amazed.
I've heard it said that you'll know when you've got the medication right but I was sceptical...until now.
Doing my best to keep positive - anyone else found the addition of Rasagiline so dramatic?
