Hi Gus,

Do you stop taking your long-acting medication before your appointment?  The sort that take days to wash out from your system.

You take your last tablets in the afternoon, and turn dbs off at 8 ißh . Your right in staying they take 24hrs to get out your system, i suppose this is long enough to show them how the pd has progressed the answer why I've never asked as it's bad enough coming of them that long i think there more interested how the dbs is doing.Thank you everyone for wishing me luck bit overwhelming thank you all .

I had my DBS operation in March 2015.  I had an assessment after one year.  I had not been taking long-acting medication so the question of stopping taking them never arose.  I now take Seligilene that is supposed to take 14 days or so to wash out.

How you finding the dbs are you benefits from it yet i seem to be getting more out of it every day i do alot more exercise now whick i think helps keep fit is one of the most important part of pd i think keep regular exercise just walking the dog and a swim sauna helps me.all the best for future dbs

My DBS results have been disappointing.  My wife does not think it has made a difference.

However, I am very pleased that it has helped you so much.  I hope it continues to do so.
