What are your thoughts on gocovri? I’m taking one capsule 137mg at bedtime for 7 days and then will increase to two capsules 274mg. The only other med I am taking is  rasagiline 1mg in the morning.  Does this seem like a high dose to be taking? I haven’t had any side effects yet and it seems to help with my tremor.

Any form of amantadine (and there are generics and two extended release formulations) can potentially help with dyskinesia.  We find it less helpful for other symptoms in our practice, but it can help.  Usually in our practice we start other medications before amatadine (dopamine or an agonist).  It is not wrong to use it earlier.
