Azilect

Dr. Okun

If a PWP was to take Azilect 1mg every other day instead of everyday what effect would it have?

Interesting question.  I don't know the answer but suspect it would result in fluctuation of symptoms (worsening off time) depending on how much symptomatic effect it was having for an individual PD patient.  I would not personally use this approach in my practice.

Thank Dr. Okun,

I only ask because of the expense of the drug. Trying to stretch the dollar but not a great plan at the expense of ones health.

Agree, I would not try to go every other day!  Hope that helps.
