It is known that atypical parkinson does not respond well to Levodopa/carbidopa. .It would be interesting to know other alternative treatments. Please share your experience. Thank you.
I have balance problems but no tremor. I take Azilect, which does help with some symptoms (like stiffness/rigidity, I blink more so my eyes aren't so dry). But like @A MyParkinsonsTeam Member I'm very big on Rock Steady Boxing. I go 3x a week and try to exercise vigorously on the other days, too.(This helped balance, handwriting, constipation, and partially reversed numbness in feet). Also physical therapy with a PT who knows PD (she really helped with my confidence, as well as balance.)
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member Why not check out the exercise place? I find myself more and more drawn to exercise both as a way to slow progression and as a way of coping.
My wife has Atypical Parkinson's. We have been to Stanford and UCSF for medical guidance. The Levodopa/Carbidopa did nothing for my wife. We are sad to say that nothing has come along that she can take that alters the progression of this treacherous disease. I wish I could suggest something, but...
Do you have " you tube"?
There are many exercises for Parkinsons pts. I use this when I cant get to class.
