Anyone Not Taking Meds For PD?

Anyone Not Taking Meds For PD?

I’m recently diagnosed and have chosen to not take any meds for it at this time. My reason is that the increase in dopamine would likely make me manic as I suffer with Bipolar disorder too.
Just curious who might not be treating and for what reason.

Is your Neurologist aware of your bipolar? Are you taking meds for the bipolar? If so, then your Neurologist would know which medications you could be taking to go along with the bipolar meds. If he can not, then seek a new Neurologist ASAP.
