Seroquel

Seroquel

I take Sinemet and Rasagiline during the day. At bedtime I take quetiapine with clonazepam for nightmares. I just saw a programme saying quetiapine blocks dopamine. But the Sinemet and Rasagiline is to increase dopamine. Is this usual? Could this be causing my lethargy or cognitive issues?

Has anyone had to deal with PD psychosis?

Has anyone had to deal with PD psychosis?

After 15 years of PD medications, I'm experiencing (as a caregiver) my wife having hallucinations of people that don't exist. Now, she is questioning me about when are we going home...when, in fact, we are at home. We are working with PD doctor introducing a new drug (Nuplazid) to help with the hallucinations. Has anyone used and experienced good or bad reactions to this medicine?
I'm brainstorming.....any thought is a good answer.
Praying God's blessings on us all as we… read more
