Dear Dr Mark Thank u so very much for yr reply. This one was for my mother and i will now persade her for exercises. my mother is 66, slightly overweight Having no other disease At times takes mild tablet for high blood preassure Having PD for 3 yrs Taking medicines SINEMET & PRAMIPEX(a dopamine agonist) Has stiff neck n back, difficulty in getting up from chair
SHOULD SHE CONTINUE WITH HER MEDICINES , OR SHOULD OTHER MEDICINES LIKE MAO INHIBITORS / COMT INHIBITORS /ANTICHOLINERGICS BE INCORPORATED ??
I am confused, not able to take a decission. Her doctor(a psychiatrist) is sticking with Sinemet. A movement disorder spl is very far. Would MAOI's make her life more comfortable...considering they might have side effects?? What if she continues with Sinemet ? Please, please advise.
