AZILECT: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Parkinson’s Disease “This drug just about killed me.. so be careful. I took it for several months then I had an unexpected severe reaction. I woke up one morning numb/tingling from head to toe – (like when your arm falls asleep). I stopped taking it – it took about 4 weeks before all the tingling to finally go away.”

For Parkinson’s Disease “For me, 0.5 mg does not work. 1.0 mg does work.”

For Parkinson’s Disease “Prior to starting Azilect I had very limited use of my right arm, my mouth drooped on my right side and my right arm did not swing while walking. I now have full use of my arm, my mouth no longer droops and my arm swings. For me Azilect has been a miracle.”

For Parkinson’s Disease “I have recently been told I have very early Parkinsons. Since then I’ve been on Azilect. I have not experienced any side effects. However, the symptoms (finger movements) have not improved. I have been told that Azilect slows down progression, therefore, alone it does not address the systems.”

For Parkinson’s Disease “I had bad results from Azilect. Was in hospital for 2 days and 2 trips to Er within 2 week time. Had little fainting spells (would have passed out except for person holding me up) Dizzy, falling. Doctor sad it wasn’t the medicine, but after stopping it these side effects went away.”

For Parkinson’s Disease “I have had to stop taking Azilect twice for surgery, the difference while I’m on it is amazing. The Azilect definitely works well with my other medicines.”
