      My new neurologist took me off Rasagiline after a year’s use and prescribed Ropinirole. I also take Sinemet I immediately began to have extreme anxiety reactions when the two meds began to wear off after 2-3 hours. Has anyone else had this reaction?

      I had a very similar reaction when I added Contam (entacapone) to my Sinemet doses recently. I’ve had shortness of breath & heart palpitations while on Sinemet alone, too, but neither my neurologist nor my cardiologist seem to think that’s the cause because that’s not a common side effect. However, I am certain that it’s the med, and after my experience with adding the entacapone I’m even more certain! Very frustrating though because it doesn’t seem like I have any other options for PD symptom control other than DBS.
