Hi Dolly, just drifting through some of your old posts and I came across this one.
Concerning co beneldopa..........
I started waking about two hours after going to bed. I used to sit on the edge of the bed like a space cadet not really being where my body was.......weird wasn't the word for it.
My PD nurse gave me one co beneldopa to take one hour before beddy bo's. Strangely enough it worked. I now sleep like a log......in the fire place......just joking, I sleep really well.
Then my Madopar was upped by a locum consultant (not my main guy) now that really f***** my system up. After three weeks of hell I went to church and repented just in case. Then I contacted my PD nurse, she said drop the extra Madopar. I did and all was reasonably well again.
I have come to the conclusion nothing is ever going to be perfect. Reading stuff on here shows we all react differently to certain meds. My other little gem of insight is my PD nurse is the best one to contact in times of trouble.
Hope you got sorted all right.
Side note......and this is genuine not me messing about like I normally do.......I was in a pub with Mrs Morph.
I went to the loo.
In through the first door and hey ho I was in Dr Who's telephone box, or what looked like a wood panelled cupboard with no exit.
I came out and said to our lass............. I can't find a door in. She wiped the table after spitting out a gob full of larger laughing at me and came to see.
She pointed out the door which was now obvious. Who needs drink when your on Madopar........it's a whole new world.
I avoided drugs in the 60's/70's because I thought I might try to fly and here I am at 63, high as a kite and legal to boot.
