Anyone Rx ‘d methylphenidate long before Onset of PD? Concern: neuron degradation? Or linkage to PD...
Here is link to one study
Several years ago while researching PD treatment I discovered that OHSU Parkinson Center used Ritalin in treatment of PD. https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=ritalin+ohsu+...
also Wikipedia mentions its use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methylphenidate
I have been on methylphenid (generic Ritalin) since learning this. I find it valuable in fatigue reduction.
Remember talking in past. You strike me as one of my favorite LT's
I looked up the Ritalin and it seems to have good promise in helping Parkinsons. It helps increase dopamine absorption and levels out the on/off periods and also has been shown to help with gait.
The studies are preliminary and hopeful.
The Parkinson's team page also says it is your birthday so Happy 🎂
I’m tired also. I don’t think I’ll ever have
Normal energy again. Also. Have really become a real night owl. Trying to do better about this
