Diagnosed with PD 6/05. Fairly well controlled with increased dyskinesia over time. For the last week the dyskinesia is uncontrolled. Use to take sinimet first thing in am and then stalevo the rest of the day. Severe dyskinesia when the stalevo was first taken for 10-20 minutes then okay. Dr. Changed to only sinimet every two hours ( tried 1/2 a pill and a whole pill) restlessness has increased and the need to walk; however, so tired it is hard to walk. Last night I walked 3 hours 45 minutes out of 5 hours, exhausting !!!!! Today he increased requip to 2 mg per day, spread out across day. Has anyone else experienced this increased dyskinesia and what has worked.? Just want to go back to old regimen with stalevo. Not sure what to do. Beginning DBS testing next week and need to get control.View Thread
