In brief: Improvement
This medine works best for stiffness, then slowness of movement, then tremor.
You need to be monitored for effectiveness and side effects by your doctor.

In brief: Better motor skills
Levodopa should really help your motor skills.
Make sure you don't eat protein around your dosing or else you may not absorb it very well.
