Just looking for some advice
What happens when Madopar starts causing long periods of hallucinations and nightmares?
My mum has been taking it for quite a number of years and it’s appeared to be helpful. Earlier this year though it was like somebody flicked a switch and suddenly she was suffering from hours of hallucinations and nightmares.
These are directly linked to Madopar and now as her doses have been lowered its very apparent that like clockwork she will start having an episode within a set time of taking a dose. She’s now down to just 1 dose during the day and a slow release dose at night.
Has anybody else had this almost intolerance to Madopar appear and if so what else is there to take which can help with the stiffness and freezing caused by PD? So far the consultant isn’t offering anything, just lowering the Madopar dose.
