Hi everyone, my Dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's 2 months ago. Unfortunately he is having terrible side affects from the medication. He was first put on, Sentimel and then Madopar. He feels nauseous, has stomach cramps and generally not himself at all.
I have contacted his Parkinson's nurse who suggested that he comes off all his meds until he sees his contsultant. Unfortunately that won't be until December! She is going to try and get him a cancellation appointment.
Although he is now off the tablets he still feels terrible. We even had to call the doctor out because we were worried. My Dad also said he has very dark thoughts too. His Nurse is on holiday and won't be back until the 12th September.
Not sure what to do next. Feel a bit isolated as this is all new to me and my family. I am also wondering if he is suffering with depression? The GP has check his blood pressure etc... Which is ok.
Would be grateful for any advise. Has anyone else experienced these side affects? Please tell me thing will get better.
