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

My husband has had parkinson's for about twenty years. He has been taking nuplazid for a year now. Still having hallucinations and delusions. He also has had trouble with uti's for the past few years which when he has an infection the hallucinations escalate.

Has Anyone Solved The "good Night's Sleep" Issue In PD? Parkies Are Advised To Rest Well, Yet How Is That Possible Without Further RX?

Has Anyone Solved The "good Night's Sleep" Issue In PD? Parkies Are Advised To Rest Well, Yet How Is That Possible Without Further RX?

I go to bed around 930,10PM--still checking the time at 1230AM or so. Some nights I believe I've gotten no sleep at all. Taking Melatonin has not helped. I need to take my first carbi-leva at 7AM and stay in bed, trying to catch some shuteye til about 9-930AM. Groggy all day. Drinking about 7 oz. of decaf in AM. (I call decaf "why bother?" LOL) Taking so many RX and Vitamin supplements… read more
