Parkinson's is called a movement disorder because its classic symptoms are movement related (also called motor symptoms).
Many people with Parkinson's also experience symptoms not related to movement, called nonmotor symptoms. These symptoms vary widely and affect a number of areas of the body. In fact, current research suggests nonmotor symptoms appear in the earliest stages of the disease, often years before motor symptoms are recognized.
It's important to understand that Parkinson's disease is a very individualized disorder, and every person experiences symptoms differently. You shouldn't try to compare your experience with Parkinson's disease to other patients you may meet.
Parkinson's is a chronic, progressive disease, which means symptoms can change and worsen over time. It's important to talk to your doctor about the symptoms you're experiencing now and any changes or new symptoms in the future. That way he or she can adjust treatments as necessary.
AZILECT® (rasagiline tablets) is indicated for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease (PD).
