Hi, My mum has recently been diagnosed with Parkinsons disease and was put on Sinimet for 2 weeks then Sinimet plus, shes started to have dilusions where she thinks she can hear her neighbours saying awful things about her, she is absolutely tormented 24/7 and its so heartbreaking to watch, has anyone experienced this and could it be the medication?. Her doctor has reduced her back to sinimet and the parkinson nurse has reduced her tablets from 3 a day to 1 but that hasnt helped, shes now under the mental health team who are coming out in 2 days with a prescription (unsure what for?) Im at my wits end, can anyone help me
I'm sorry to hear about your Mum's symptoms, this must be so distressing and upsetting.
