I’m diagnosed with RBD, one of the gateways to PD.
I’m on Clonazepam. Low dose of 500 mcg or less per night. Boy does it make me feel sluggish in the morning. I haven’t had caffeine for about 25 years but I started having coffee again in the morning to try and give me a kick-start. I was also put on to Eldepryl, to be taken each morning.
Both forms of medication together are the worst to get a good start to the day. I’ve given up Eldepryl. COnfused to be taking it in the morning as it says “could make you feel tired and sleepy”. That’s the last thing I want in the morning…
Sometimes I can get to sleep without Clonazepam, if the twitching isn’t too bad. I usually have a much better day afterwards if that’s the case.
Has anybody got any advice they can share about these forms of medication?
