Parkinson’s Medications

I have had Parkinson’s Disease for six (6) years and am on monotherapy of Sinemet. I have no tremor and do not experience peak dose dyskinesia, but moderate start of dose dyskinesia and and severe end of dose dyskinesia. Have you any advice on this?

I know about amantadine, but I believe it can only be effective for peak dose dyskinesia? I read that there are basically two subtypes of Parkinson’s – tremor dominant (more benign form) and a non tremor type (more “virulent” form that progress quicker, but normally responds well to sinemet).  I welcome your comments.
