Hi I was diagnosed with PD in 2009 with only a slight tremor in my right hand, but now know I had symptoms for some time before that. The shake is quite bad now. I use neupro patches, but have just started taking Orpenadrine tablets as well. I would be interested to know if anyone else is taking them? they are for the tremor. I`m 70 and retired

Hi I'm a new member.
So I,ll start with a few details about my self.I'm 66yrs old and
I've been diagnosed a couple of years with PD although I'm fairly sure I've had PD longer than that. I've been a Kidney patient for thirty years and currently have a transplant. So over the thirty years I've taken a lot of powerful medication for my transplant and other medical problems.
My main concern is though, trying to understand which medical problem is causing which symptom.

Hi. I sometimes think we are used as guinea pigs trying all the different meds. I`ve tried several different tablets and felt worse on them. I will keep taking the latest for a few more weeks to see if they make a difference.
