I found out 3 yrs ago that I have Parkinson's. When I first started taking my carbo/ levo I started loosing weight and that made me happy. Now I am taking Azilect along with the carbo/levo and I am gaining weight~ a bunch of weight. How can I get this weight off. I do walk, I am active, I just cant get the weight off. Any suggestions?

Most of the time if weight gain is due to a medication ... only taking the person off the medicines may make it easier to lose weight. However, in your condition that is not an option. You appear to be doing exercise, etc. How is your diet? If you diet is good then it'll be hard to do much.
Discuss with your doctor if it is appropriate for you to take any of the weight loss medicines. All the best.
