Living With Parkinson’s Disease
What you need to know about dyskinesia and OFF-episodes.
Join host Ereka Vetrini as she travels to Daytona Beach, Florida, to learn about dyskinesia and off-episodes with Parkinson’s disease.
GOCOVRI® (amantadine) extended-release capsules is a prescription medicine used:
• for the treatment of dyskinesia (sudden uncontrolled movements) in people with Parkinson’s disease who are treated with levodopa therapy or levodopa therapy with other medicines that increase the effects of dopamine in the brain.
• and also, with levodopa and carbidopa in people with Parkinson’s disease who are having “off” episodes.
It is not known if GOCOVRI is safe and effective in children.
