At what point do you decide that you are being impulsive or compulsive? Is it the meds are just getting you back to feeling great and you realise that yes you can move enough to enjoy sex and secondly you feel good enough in yourself to actually want to go shopping for clothes? I've began to enjoy sex which I havent done for a very long time - thinking about it more but is that because it was enjoyable again?- is it normal or is it being compulsive? Also lost weight so easy to find clothes that fit - now i love having a full wardrobe ... wrong or right? yes the desire for these things have increased quite a lot but being completely rigid in left side and then finding the cause is PArkinsons didnt exactly make me feel desirable. Confused - at what point do I highlight this as an issue or should I love the fact I have a life back? Early onset / under 40 years old 8mg Ropinerole xl 600mg Madopar per day. I would love your feedback.
Me personally i have always loved shopping and a healthy active sex life . my interest in sex has increased since i have been on Madopar but i would not say it has become compulsive ,i would class it has impulsive or compulsive when the desire becomes to strong to ignore and takes over your life , if that is not the case and as you quite rightly say being able to move freely and feeling desirable again has re awakened your interest enjoy it
Both at the same time.

Sorry to hear about your Dad what meds is he taking on a night ? it seems to me that if they are making the situation worse I would certainly question if they are the correct meds for him.
I also have PD and in the early days was subscribed Quetiapin Aurobindo (25 mg) to help me sleep they worked for me, however we are all different and what worked for me may not work for your dad.
But I would certainly take this up with his Neurologist.
keep your chin up there is always a solution just a case of persevering.
the doctors are of course right medication for PD takes time to work and every time it is adjusted the body needs time to adjust no short cuts there.
Sorry to say but there is still no quick fix for PD either again everybody that has PD reacts differently to the situation and medication.
As far as the water drinking is concerned Madopar had the same affect on me it made me very thirsty but also made me loose weight so eventually I had to come of that.
Just keep on at the neurologist if there is no improvement that is my philosophy I find that if you make enough noise things will get done.
That is PD for you totally un-predictable your father will have good days and bad days which may or may not have any link to the medication he is taking.
I suggest you look for fact sheets/information on PD which should help you immensely in understanding what the disease is all about & how it can affect both family members and the affected.
I am fairly sure you will be able to get this info through the Parkinsons UK Website.
Good luck and please have patience with your Dad he will need lots of support.
