My father has had Parkinsons for several years with Dementi over the last year and his current medication is:
Rotigatine 2mg patch and 25/100mg & 12.5/100mg of Co-Careldopa.
However he is increasingly in pain from his neck and tenderness across his stomach.
He has been on a number of painkillers e.g. from Paracetamal, Gabapentine, Oralmoph and finally a Butrans Patch . He was taken off all of these as they seemed to have little or no affect on his pain levels and each gave him associated side affects. His Parkinsons Nurse seems to have run out of ideas of how to now give him any suitable pain relief. Any thoughts / experiences advice appreciated...
