My dad has had parkisons since 2013 and is on medication, Sinemet.
He came off his medication for 2 days because it was making him feel sick and then went back on it again 2 days later. ( unfortunately we do not live in the same household so I didnt know this). He is now experiencing double vision and has been for around 5 days now.
He has spoken to a doctor who checked him over but didnt really provide much guidance other than it should go away ?! And to keep a diary untill the parkisons nurse can get to him which is in anouther 5 days time.
I’m trying to understand if this could be a symptoms of parkisons ( albeit it has come on suddenly) or If it could be the side effect of the medication, perhaps because he stopped and then started it again. Could anyone advise if they have experience this and how long for ?
Hopefully the parkisons nurse will shed some light on this
