Any new experiences with Azilect (Rasagiline) as a monotherapy?
Hi! I’m new to this group. I was recently diagnosed with early stage Parkinson’s (tremor dominant). I have left side tremors in my hand/arm and leg; mild bradykinesia of my left hand and some mild left arm/shoulder/hand rigidity. My mobility and balance are excellent and I exercise daily with a variety of exercises (Rock Steady Boxing, fast walking on a treadmill, Smoovey vibrating rings, weight lifting, and exercise/stretches with physical therapy resistance bands).
My PD/movement disorder specialist does not think I need any medication at this time, but he suggested that I consider taking Azilect (alone) since it MIGHT have some disease modifying properties. Generally, I like to avoid medications, but if I can find people who truly believe that Azilect as a monotherapy has slowed or stabilized their progression I would love to hear their stories But I would also love to hear the stories of those who have taken Azilect as a monotherapy and have experienced no stabilizing or improvement of their PD.
I have searched through all of the existing posts on Azilect, and I am looking for new information/experiences.
Thanks and God bless you all!
