“We hosted an investor lunch with a practicing neurologist who discussed his experience with Gocovri. Specifically, he reported hallucinations in approximately 50% of his patients, vs. the 21% reported in the product label. This doctor attributed the side effect to rapid titration to the 274 mg daily dose, and has started to experiment with starting patients on the lowest 68.5 mg dose of the product (but was concerned that efficacy was modest at this level). This physician treated ~20 patients so far, but only 5-7 of these currently remain on the drug. We learned that for his patients 65 years had to be stepped down in dose or stop taking the product.”,” the firm’s analyst commented.
