I am currently taking Sinamet and Azilect. This was working fine for several months, but lately I have been noticing a drop in my energy level. I've heard that Q-10 helps restore energy and was thinking about trying it. Is it safe to take with Sinamet and Azilect?View Thread
Thank you very much, Susie. I don't exceed 1mg/day Azilect and am on high BP medication. I have been noticing a mild worsening of my dyskinesia, especially an hour or so after I take my Sinamet. It manifests itself mainly in a very irritating head shaking which subsides after approximately three hours. I just very recently learned about the tyramine. Unfortunately, I had been eating aged cheese, but am now trying to cut it out of my diet. The other movements are also annoying, but what really bothers me is the rigidity. Wish there was something I could take which would relax me without making me totally lethargic. I've also recently heard about something called forced excercise and am going to check if there is anything like it in my area. Once again, thank you.View Thread
