“Off” time in Parkinson’s
disease (PD) can keep you
from moving the way
you want to
You can have “off” time when your PD
start to wear off.
“Off” time is when Parkinson’s symptoms return
between medication doses.
Within 5 years of starting levodopa/carbidopa, half of people living with PD begin to
experience “off” time, including problems with MOVEMENT.
As PD progresses,
you may have
more “off” time
There are many signs of “off” time, including:
- Difficulty walking
- Partial or total inability to move
Think you’re having “off” time?
Track your symptoms with the
Doctor Discussion Guide and talk
to your doctor to discuss options.
Adenosine and dopamine are naturally occurring
chemicals in the brain that help control movement.
Typically, both adenosine and dopamine work together in balance to help you move the way you want to. But in PD, that’s not the case.
There’s more to think about than just dopamine.

the brake of adenosine.
