Thank you all for your welcome.
Rico: My husband is on Sinemet Plus and Rivastigmine patches. He gets hallucinations which became worse when we tried Selegeline, so we (that is the PD nurse and me) stopped it. The patches do help. I know this because a couple of times they have been missed and the confusion and memory were much worse.
We have great support from our PD nurse and see the neuro six monthly. Also our GP is very good, although she says that when it comes to meds the PD nurse is far more clued up than she is.
We have a good Parkinsons Support Group and the carers get together from time to time.
So all in all things could be much worse.
Most of the time I am very upbeat and just get on with things but occasionally it all overwhelms me and I get very low. I find Bach Rescue Remedy very effective when that happens!
