Stomach problems

I was diagnosed 2 months ago and given riprinirole xl which is helping my symptoms a lot. However I often have loose bowels (didn’t before) and stomach cramps, and occasionally nausea. I am not sure if this is due to the medication or not, or whether I am becoming intolerant to some foods.

I am going to keep a detailed diary, because I do have days where I feel amazing, but then days where I just don’t feel great.

I have the number for the Nottingham parkinson’s nurses so will try ringing tomorrow. I next have an appointment with the neurologist in a month.

Has anyone else had stomach problems like this and what helped?

I used to make and have kefir every day but stopped a while ago. I am wondering if it might help to start again.
