Duadopa

My husband is being considered for the duadopa pump.

It has bothered me for some time now why there is so little written about this method of delivery of the medication.

If anyone uses duadopa can you please give me some feedback.

I know what is involved in the procedure and the stated benefits and risks etc but I have seen little from patients and caregivers.

Anyone?

Thank you.

Sorry I can't help as I know nothing about it, but you are right that this is not spoken about much. I hope it works for him.

Thank you Astra.

The infusion is supposed to override the scheduling of the medication.

Less off times because the infusion goes directly into the small intestine with less competition from food....and other benefits.

Let's hope.
