Age 64

A family-oriented artist, Deborah started experiencing dyskinesia in 2013—10 years after her PD diagnosis. Deborah tried amantadine IR, but amantadine IR is not approved for dyskinesia. Determined not to let dyskinesia and OFF time stop her, she found GOCOVRI. Now she can get back to painting and playing pool.


Age 54

Diagnosed with dyskinesia in 2010, 3 years after her PD diagnosis, Laura is a Real GO GETTER who won't let dyskinesia and OFF time keep her from living an active lifestyle. Not ready to commit to surgery, she turned to GOCOVRI. Now she can keep more of a routine and get back to her beloved horses.


Age 66

Ervin enjoys giving back to the community, but when he started experiencing dyskinesia in 2014, 11 years after his PD diagnosis, he worried he would have to take a step back from helping others. With GOCOVRI, Ervin has more control of his dyskinesia and OFF time. Now, he and his wife, Gayle, continue to stay engaged in local support groups.
