I was on azilect as the only medicine after I was diagnosed 5 years ago. It didn't help my symptoms nor did I suffer side effects despite the warnings. Based on my experience, I would not think that azilect is causing "unusual decisions". The shakiness inside could be from the Parkinsons. However your husband found it stopped when he quit taking azilect? Azilect was sold as a neuro protector, slows the disease down. That has since been disproven. It does however help the limited dopamine in our bodies from breaking down so fast. I think he would do better if he had another type of medicine along with his azilect. Parky medicine does have the ability to affect our minds. But everyone reacts a little bit differently. You be observant of him is my best advice. For information about PD, there is lots of stuff online. If there is a support group in your locale, they may have a booklet with everything laid out. One of the confusing things about PD is that everyone experiences something a little bit different. You could also read all of the posts on this forum. Whoa, that would be a lot of reading. You said that your husband is active. Keep that aspect going. Activity is one of the best things that he can do for himself.
Get a good motion disorder specialist, a good drug routine, exercise and stay positive. Retire to Florida, It will work out okay.
Good luck, jb

I think John from Ontario summed it up nicely. Ditto to what he said.
