Managing Parkinson


#1

My mother was suffering from Parkinson for the past 3 years. She has no tremors. Only dyskinesia. She was taking dopamine for 4-5 times a day. It wears off within 1-2 hours. off late she had a fall and surgery was done. During that time dopamine was reduced. Later I reduced and almost stopped dopamine for 2 months. I felt she was much better in managing with the symptoms than with the medicine which had become an addiction.

If good care and positive support is given Medicines can be controlled
