|5||Parkinson's Disease||I can't think of any because the benefits were so great, I didn't even think about side effects. However, my pharmacist and doctor both warned me that it was an MAO inhibitor, so I was extremely careful about drug interactions and my diet.||By the time I started taking it, a generic was out and it was simply called selegeline; I hope this is the brand we're discussing. It helped the tremor in my left hand within a few days and the stiffness in my legs. Taking sinemet caused the most dramatic reduction of my PD symptoms, but selegeline caused the second most dramatic improvement. The doctors and I were amazed. I've since switched to Azilect, which is also an MAO inhibitor, as there's a possibility that it may slow down the progress of the PD. I've not noticed any side effects with it. Since starting the selegeline and replacing it with Azilect, I've been able to cut back on my sinemet.||F||52||7 months ||2/7/2007|
