The drug is LMTX...I will quote
"it allows patients to perform every ay tasks with no marked decline in brain function" It was discovered in 2016 and subject to medical trials. It may be available now.. You would have to check..
I have PD too and it is a sad fact that 80% of us will develop dementia. I am 73 and as yet I am ok .I hope your dad is ok

My husband started Nuplazid 5 days ago. Right now hallucinations are worse. Was told the first week to expect them to increase. Does it get better? I'm trying to keep positive and hope this is going to get better. Any suggestions? How long before you saw a difference? Thanks for your input.
