I was diagnosed in October 2012. I currently take Amantadine x 2 daily and Madopar 100/25 x 5 daily with 65 mgs of dispersible Madopar with the hard capsules x 5 daily.In other words 3 hourly. I also take slow release Madopar at night x 1 before bed.
Lately I have suffered regular wearing off episodes especially in the mornings around the time of my second daily dose. My neurologist recommended Rasigiline 1mg.
Do I keep to the same dose of Madopar or reduce it slightly.?
Do I take note of the possible side effects if I eat foods high in Tyramine (bananas,figs,cheese,yoghurts and avocados)?
I would be grateful for any advice.
