I wonder if anyone else has experience of this… My Dad has Parkinson’s Disease and is currently taking a combination of Madopar and Pramipexole extended release to treat the symptoms.
He has been taking 2.1mg of Pramipexole each morning for a number of months and has now been prescribed an additional 0.26mg tablet.
My first question is, are there any problems with taking these 2 tablets together, or should the doses be separated? For example, should he continue to take the 2.1mg dose at 7am and take the 0.26mg later in the day? His doctor and pharmacist haven’t been able to give us an answer.
Second question: He seems more confused and anxious in the early evening and sometimes during the night. Could taking the Pramipexole later in the day help him, or would it interfere too much with his sleep?
