ive been reading the forum tonight and I feel quite concerned. I thought the best area to post under was 'self management'. I've been dx for four years now, had symptoms for probably 10 years, and yes, I know we are all different. What shocks me is the amount of medication some are taking. The long term effects of medication is well documented as are experiences and tragedies. I am very, very lucky to have a neuro who does not write a prescription without questioning. Yes, I have bad days, but I have learned that usually there is a reason ....what I've ate, stress, worry, lack of sleep, timing.... I just really worry that drugs are being issued without question and although giving immediate relief, are not dealing with what may be a simple issue.
i currently take 4 x sinemet plus 100/25 and 1 azilect 1mg daily. As I say, some days are harder than others, but there's normally a reason,,and exploring that is part of my self management.
i hope my post doesn't offend it is not intended to do so.
with best wishes
