Dear Dr.Okun,

I am on Azilect 1 mg daily + Senimet 25/100 x3times+recently Comtan 200x3 times during last ~2 years for tremor dominated PD.
The only effect from Azilect is a hope that it can delay PD progression.
Recently at one of PD conference I heard that Azilect (as well as Q10) no more in the list of drags that gives us a hope to delay PD progression.

What is your opinion ?
Do I have to continue to take Azilect even if I don't see any positive effect ?

Thank you.

It is hard to say. It is still debated among experts,

It provides a mild symptomatic effect and it is not known whether it delays progression.
