Reviews for Rasagiline to treat Parkinson's Disease
"I have been taking rasagiline for a month. I have not had any problems so far, my energy is better I have noticed that I walk better and my left hand which gave me trouble I have regained a lot of use back. The only negative is the price but if it gives me my life back it's worth it"

"Got diagnosed with early stage. Got rasagiline. 1 mg. Had fainting, dizziness, headaches. Friends and family said I am different, not myself. Dose was lowered to 0.5, still sameI issues. Stopped taking it. Symptoms went away. Taking now OTC 4Life Recall and Transfer Factors to improve brain functions without side effects."

Azilect (rasagiline): "This drug just about killed me.. so be careful. I took it for several months then I had an unexpected severe reaction. I woke up one morning numb/tingling from head to toe - (like when your arm falls asleep). I stopped taking it - it took about 4 weeks before all the tingling to finally go away."

Azilect (rasagiline): "For me, 0.5 mg does not work. 1.0 mg does work."

Azilect (rasagiline): "Prior to starting Azilect I had very limited use of my right arm, my mouth drooped on my right side and my right arm did not swing while walking. I now have full use of my arm, my mouth no longer droops and my arm swings. For me Azilect has been a miracle."

Azilect (rasagiline): "I have recently been told I have very early Parkinsons. Since then I've been on Azilect. I have not experienced any side effects. However, the symptoms (finger movements) have not improved. I have been told that Azilect slows down progression, therefore, alone it does not address the systems."

Azilect (rasagiline): "I had bad results from Azilect. Was in hospital for 2 days and 2 trips to Er within 2 week time. Had little fainting spells (would have passed out except for person holding me up) Dizzy, falling. Doctor sad it wasn't the medicine, but after stopping it these side effects went away. "

Azilect (rasagiline): "I have had to stop taking Azilect twice for surgery, the difference while I'm on it is amazing. The Azilect definitely works well with my other medicines."

Azilect (rasagiline): "It should be noted why a patient should stop taking this medicine before surgery. My father went in for a routine cystoscope and had major bleeding complications. Patients should be made aware that this medicine may CAUSE BLEEDING."
