  1. I was 71 when diagnosed with Parkinson's Stage 1; I am now 73 and still probably Stage 1. What should I expect regarding when (what age) symptoms will become disabling in my activities of golf, pickleball, bicycling, hiking, etc.? I just started taking carbidopa/levodopa. How long is that medication likely to be effective minimizing motor skills symptoms? When should I expect the possibility of any negative side effects of that medication? Thanks for any information you can give me about what and when to expect these changes.
  2. Is there any update available regarding generic Azilect being available in US in February 2017?
