I am still waiting for news of the new drug, Rytary, Patrome in the UK? being available here.
I am concerned by this in the patient leaflet....does it mean it can't be taken with Azilect.
"Rytary is contraindicated in patients who are currently taking or have recently (within 2 weeks) taken a nonselective monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor (e.g., phenelzine and tranylcypromine). Hypertension can occur if these drugs are used concurrently."
The availability of an extended release L dopa med will make life so much easier but we feel Azilect has held back progression and is an important part of the symptom control.
Guidance from Research would be helpful.
