The good thing about “Good On” time

“Good On” time is when your medicine is working well, and you aren’t experiencing symptoms. It also means you’re not having those movements you can’t control, called dyskinesia, which include twitches, jerks, and twisting motions. Or, if you are experiencing them, they’re not affecting your daily activities.

Your care partner can be helpful in noticing these unwanted movements. That’s why it’s helpful if your care partner is with you at your doctor appointment. It will give them the chance to share this information with your doctor.

Did you know that studies show each additional hour of “Good On” time can give you:

  • Greater independence
  • Improved quality of life
  • Fewer falls
  • Fewer emergency room visits
  • Reduction in the likelihood of hospitalization
  • A decrease in the likelihood of uncontrolled motor and non-motor symptoms
