Good Luck dear,
Dx 2004, age 45. DBS surgery, 2009: Bi-lateral STN placement; wires to one battery - on my left side. 500mg Sinemet CR daily.

Kim...seems you and I have share the same PD constitution. Mirapex, Stalevo, and Requip all turned me into a nauseated and profusely sweating zombie! My switch to Sinemet, Amantadine, Comtan, and Azilect has been a great choice for me. Rarely do I experience any side-effects from these drugs and, when I do, I can always trace taking the meds on an empty stomach and then now having something to eat after taking my dosage.
Sadly, Krista, I was wiped out and nauseated on both - to such an extreme that I was forced to come off them. I did give it a good try though (about eleven months). The wonderful thing about the human body, I have found, is that we are none of us the same! What one body can tolerate with ease, another cannot tolerate at all, and so on, along a very wide ranging spectrum. So, I say, keep an open mind and if your doc thinks you should try it, well, why not!
Good Luck dear,
Hope you find a combo that works well for you.
