Drooling

Drooling

My husband has thick Flem, causing difficulty speaking and swallowing. He carries a wad of tissue with him and is embarrassed by the constant drooling. Is there help for this problem? He did not do this before his PD diagnosis.

Has Any One Experienced Craving For Food Following Intake Of Carbidopa-levodopa?

Has Any One Experienced Craving For Food Following Intake Of Carbidopa-levodopa?

My physician recently increased my dose of carbidopa -levodopa because I was experiencing extreme off-effects [e.g. cold sweats; cold extremities; a sudden fatigue, decreased communication skills, and balance problems] about 90 minutes after taking the medication.

My Doctor Has Me On Primidone. It Has Helped With The Tremors, But Nothing Else. Shouldn't It Do More?

My Doctor Has Me On Primidone. It Has Helped With The Tremors, But Nothing Else. Shouldn't It Do More?

By the end of the day I am shaking again, head bobbing, falling when turning around, and loosing my train of thought. I know that I have had tremors for over 25 years, off and on, and been falling for the past 5 years, so my diagnosis last month came as no surprise.

Dale what are all symptoms that carbo/levo impact? My understanding was that it did not improve balance but I keep seeing posts that say otherwise
