For Parkinson's Disease "I have had PD since age 39. I have been taking Stalevo since available. It has worked wonders for me as long as I don't forget to take it. I tried all three compmonents of Stalevo as individual pills, and they did not work for me like their combination in Stalevo. Highly recommend."

For Parkinson's Disease "My father was put on Stalevo and had to discontinue use after suffering side effects which came on after dosage was raised in succession. He has had severe side effects such as fatigue, diarrhea and he could barely function. He is no longer on the medication."

For Parkinson's Disease "I was put on Stalevo and threw up for 2 days. First night hallucinations and insomnia. I read where if a history of melanoma you should not take this medicine. I do have history so called my neurologist and discontinued this medication."

For Parkinson's Disease "I'm 66 years old and I've had PD since 2009. I've been taking Stalevo for 5+ years and I take 5 a day. Have very little off time unless I'm late on taking my dosage. So far it's been pretty effective in treating my PD."

For Parkinson's Disease "Has helped with all of my symptoms and other problems, which I wasn't sure whether it was the disease or side effects of the agonists (Requip and Mirapex) I had taken before."
