I've recently joined the forum. My wife was diagnosed with "Parkinsonism" on October 2013 and has been prescribed Sinemet at the lowest dose. It has significantly improved motor and expression issues but, I belive, is casing a lot of issues around confusion. She is also type 1 diabetic and sometimes has problems telling the difference between her blood sugar levels and the time. She also gets very confused about numbers generally, although this has been exhibited to an extend since she went under a general anaesthetic for a bunion operation in August 2012 - but it has got noticeably worse since she's been on the Sinemet.
The question is - has anyone else seen this sort of confusion and, if so, how was it addressed, please?
I'm now retired, as is my wife, but it is becoming quite a big issue. I try to advise her about times, etc. but, I feel, it is important that she's able to manage the taking of medication herself rather than being reliant on me - not that I intend to go anywhere.......
Any advice much appreciated.
