Newly diagnosed

Dad newly diagnosed they have said parkinism, he has started levdopa but since starting this his symptoms have got a lot worse stuttering his speech forgetting words and the tremors seem to have to got worse than before trying to tell him he needs to go back to GP to tell them about the new symptoms but he says he should give the medication more time is there a reason why the levodopa will do this ?

Hi Geegee … There are many types of Parkinson’s diseases as you know. Some react well to medication & some react badly & some just don’t make any difference at all.
If there is a bad reaction I would tell your GP immediately & I would think he will tell you to stop taking the pills.

Best of luck.
