    cost (money) is not problem to me. I scared about side effect such as headache, feel that you have a flu, neck pain, depression and moodiness, dizziness ( I have a problem with losing balance). Did you have any side effects?
    PS: Rasagiline and Azilect in Poland is the same drug.

    did year long trial of rasagiline, think it slowed progression. now take azilect off-label....l think it helps slow progression....friend has Parkinson's and he believes it slow his progression....if it helps spasticity may be worth it...guess you compare cost to benifit

    first of all, I'm sorry for my english but I'm from Poland.
    I have a question about Azilect/ Rasagiline, becouse in June 2013 i was in Germany to confirm a diagnose (Polish doctor's was uncertain that I have ALS). They agreed that it is ALS. They offered me to take Azilect/Rasagiline, but one Polish doctor said that Azilect/Rasagiline does not slow progession, but help with symptoms like spasticity.
    What your doctor says about Azilect/Rasagiline?
    Thanking you in advance for answer.

    Pearshoot, good to hear from you and to know your Chinese medicine routine is doing some good. I'm finding that doctors do not communicate very well with one another or their patients. I hope to see you next month.

    I truly hope you don't leave here pearshoot.

    So what if people quibble here sometimes, that's people and that's the world at large.

    I for one would miss your posts, I always read with interest what you have to say on progression, looking after yourself, exercise etc
