One more additional question : is there a fluid form for the regular Parkinson's medication which can be given to the patient as an IV ? So right now my uncle faces 2 problems : he cannot take any regular Parkinson's medications due to dysphagia and is there any treatment for the Parkinson's dysphagia itself ? Thanks for your time.View Thread
