Post Balance Problems
Recently my LO had a lot of balance problems with leaning backwards. After a lot of research I discovered that it was the increase of Sinemet to 3 x daily of 25/100 and they added Azilect. Since going back to Sinemet twice daily and eliminating the Azilect, her balance is much better.

So which do you think it was, the Sinemet or the addition of Azilect?

I think it was a combination as they are both supposed to do the same thing and they both cause hallucinations. The Azilect clearly states a side effect is balance.
