And, more particularly, have you ever had a discussion with your Neurologists about the effects or side effect for PD patients? My husband was diagnoses several years ago and most symptoms are motor related. Not much cognitive impairment yet.

I have tried Clonazapam but it did not suit me. It made me hyper and played games with my head.I told my GP that I would rather put up with the insomnia or nightmares when I can sleep and retain my sanity.
These symptoms are all over the board. At this moment, If it wasn't for my left leg moving, I wouldn't know I have PD. But sometimes it is better then sometimes worse. I just take it as it comes. I am still able to drive. I have some problems with depth perception, but mostly I am doing well. PS This is for anyone who reads it. Not anyone in particular. I support you all!
ShirleyStarling, Please ask your neurologist to try you on ClonazePam 1/2 mil one half hour before bedtime. It works really well for me. Also, I have violent nightmares and it really has reduced those as well. But I went from maybe two or three hours of sleep to more like six hours. Best Wishes for you!
I use Gummies and cannabis with THC’ S.
Gummies I use during the day if tremors or dyskinesia get too bad. They help to relax me and reduce the discomfort and pain.
The cannabis leaf is ground up and added to a brownie recipe. I eat one 2x2 inch square before bed and get at least some sleep (usually about 2 hours )before insomnia takes over.
Either appear to have an adverse effect on medication
