Update: My mom will be released to go home today after being in 2 rehabs a total of 44 days. Keep these drs and nurses on their toes. Her nurse didnt believe us when we said her Simemet puts her to sleep in 30 mins, 'this med doesnt do that'.
After countless attempts to get her neurologist to speak with the rehab dr, , the Sinemet was decreased and she no longer has these extended sleeping patterns and is able to function in a wheel chair and walker both. Be an advocate and get your opinion heard! These rehabs dont know about Parkinsons symptoms fully. Its unfortunate, but true. good luck all!View Thread
thx Donna, the dosage was decreased.. mom seemed better but i think with any meds change, there is an adjustment period.. she wants to sleep alot more. hoping this too passes.. good luck to you too!View Thread
