Having just spent the evening in the local police station - does anyone have experience of hitting people due to the side-effects of stalevo and/or neupro and/or madopar?
hello turnip...hitting people whilst on madapar..no...were you drinking any alcohol at the time?....or was the person you hit?...
Sorry about your predicament. It's been making me think and I don't know if there is any value in what I concluded, or who you can talk to to see if there is any validation but here goes. Please bear with me through the waffle.
I don't know about pd meds as still being considered but I also have epilepsy and although I prefer to control it through avoiding triggers it did get bad enough where I gave in and tried the meds for a while. One of the meds side effect s was to really louse up emotions and made me go really weird, I lived on the edge of hysterics all the time I took it, nearly a year. It nearly wrecked my marriage and all. Researching it I found it was nicknames the angerdrug and was even taken into consideration if you ended up in court because of what it does to you.
I don't know if pd meds can do the same sort of thing, but they are doing things to the brains chemistry and I know some can cause compulsive behaviour, so it would be interesting to know if you can find out if the meds have any reputation and if you can get them considered by the powers to be.
I don't know how you can find out though, maybe the helpline would be worth a visit.
Do you think it would help to talk to someone here (at PUK) about this? Do you need some advice?
I can look in to seeing how we can best support you.
It's great to hear that you're getting different types of advice, I hope you'll find it helpful.
I will pass your request to the team to see how they can help.
Glad you are gettin support. It's really scary when you feel your mind and body is not under your own control for a while. Hope it all gets resolved soon.
Hello old friend, im sorry you have had trouble with the sweeny , I have had very severe Dyskie attacks
and have stabbed myself in my cheek but all the anger is diverted inward and stored for later use and I need industrial strength goggles or my eyes will suffer, I hope all is ok with you my friend I am now going to post on the OCB thread as its there I will explain my absence
Best wishes FED
morning turnip..apologies if i seemed to be speaking out of term ,i asked if you were in a social situation and if alcohol was involved to see why you reacted in order to understand your situation as ive not heard of that reaction before ,and maybe to learn from it...hope things worked out ok after all said and done .
it was very scary. but also an interesting experience.
one important lesson is dont call the police if you commit a crime.
