I have had Parkinson’s disease for about 7 years and have been on numerous tablets, which I found made me like a zombie, so I decided to stop taking so many and just stuck to my Sinemet plus tablets. I felt much better but I still didn’t feel that good, so I went back to see my doctor and explained what I had been doing. At first he was surprised that I had stopped taking my medication (which had been prescribed by a different doctor) but after talking to him for a while he asked me if I would like to try some medication called opicapone.

New lease on life

Well nothing has been any better than these tablets as they have given me a new lease of life. I don’t suffer from that awful down period and I feel so much better in myself. I can actually speak better, walk better, and sleep better with no aches and pains. I hope this helps other who suffer with Parkinson’s disease.
