I am in an early stage as my only symptoms are left hand tremor at rest. Anyhow, I took the meds for several days but they made me feel awful. So since it is not a "cure" I was wondering why take it at this point of time? Especially since it makes me nauseous.
I hope you got my post about delaying carbadopa/levadopa. I did that too until my syptoms because worse. That helped my mental state as well as my body. Hope you can delay it too.
It made my leg shaking worse so I stopped it
When I was first diagnosed about 7 + years ago, my doc gave me a very mild pill because I only had my right hand shake every so often. i was diagnosed because when I was carrying coffee to our bedroom, my hand shook and I dropped one cup of coffee. My doctor said I had PD, but i really didn't believe him. I hadn't known anyone who had it, especially in my family. I took the first prescription but didn't take any more for several months. Then the shaking got worse, and I went to a neurologist who confirmed the diagnosis. However, I had a relatively long time without taking anything. I hope you won't have to take the meds for some time too. The pills weren't curing the disease, so I feel fortunate that I didn't have to take so many at the onset. I'm now taking the strongest. The symptoms get less then worse as time goes by. Good luck and God bless.
Keep a diary of your meds and what happens before and after. This will help your health care providers and you to determine what to do next.
