  • Do you experience troubling dyskinesias (involuntary excessive movements)?
  • Do you take frequent doses of dopaminergic drugs (Levodopa, Sinemet*, Stalevo*, Parcopa*) in a typical day?
  • Despite having tried several drug combinations, do you experience any of the following troubling side effects: sleepiness, nausea, hallucinations, confusion/other thinking problems, lightheadedness upon standing, behavioral/personality changes?
