Is anyone using Rytary

Posted by tllaes @tllaes, Aug 17, 2018

My doctor is suggesting I switch from a combination of Sinemet 25/100 and 50/200 to Rytary 36.25 mg-145 mg oral capsule,extended release. I would take 3 cap(s) 3 times a day. He feels my on time will increase. Is anyone taking Rytary? It is very expensive and not covered in my Rx Formulary at this time. If you are taking has it been an improvement? I have Parkinson for almost 7 years.

It has improved somewhat….I have less dyskinesia but sometimes it just does not work. VERY frustrating

I am sorry to hear that the change in dosage has not been as successful as you had hoped it would.

When you said, "sometimes it just does not work" what are you referring to? Is it a problem with balance, gait, etc.?

I just do not function at my most optimal level. My gait is off, I am still, brain fog

I'm sorry to hear that, @parkiegirl. Those are difficult symptoms to live with. Do you have many falls?
