I have had such great comments under my original post regarding the Duopa pump which as many of you know is a gel formulation of carbidopa/levodopa enteral suspension infused directly into the small intestine. Since then, I have gained more information on various Parkie’s personal experiences and even had a dear friend who recently had pump attached. When I asked her if she was feeling that Duopa was working to control her medication fluctuations, she responded, “Awesome Sauce!” The only complaint that she voiced was on the heavy weight of the pump itself and the lack of options available to wear it. She wanted functional yet fashionable packs to carry the device.
Well just today, I met with a representative from Abbvie and got the scoop on the latest options for carry the Duopa pump…super cool! Still not impressed? If you’re a new or existing patient, you get your first pack for free! Just contact Abbvie’s DuoConnect at 844-386-4968 to place your order.
