I was diagnosed two years ago and was immediately put on CL. I had a terrible allergic reaction (skin peeling off in strips) and my head felt like it was “clanging.” So I was switched to pramipexole. I like the pramipexole, it feels “gentler” somehow. My point is that if you want to get off CL maybe you can simply switch to pramipexole.

I’m a 71-year-old woman, diagnosed two years ago. Was immediately put on c/l, but within a few days my skin started peeling off in little strips, all over my body. The neurologist switched me to pramipexole, which I still take. I’m curious if anyone else has any kind of skin reaction to c/l.

Wordle and Spelling Bee are fun because they’re much much quicker than doing crossword puzzles, but u still get a brain workout. If u don’t like crossword puzzles, try Wordle; I predict u will love it.

Every four months I see a neurologist. I live in a skilled nursing facility so I have constant access to nurses if I have health questions. I’m curious how many people reading this are in a facility?

I am a 71-year-old woman who was diagnosed with PD two years ago and was immediately put on Levodopa. I had a terrible reaction to it, my skin peeled off in little strips; I looked like I was covered with little “feathers.” So the neurologist switched me to pramipexole three times a day. So far, I am very happy with the pramipexole.
