Parkinson's Disease Medical Treatment

The goal of medical management of Parkinson's disease is to control signs and symptoms as long as possible, while minimizing side effects. Medications usually provide good control for 4 to 6 years. After this time period, disability usually progresses despite medical management, and many people develop long-term motor complications including fluctuations and an inability to control their muscles called dyskinesia. Additional causes of disability in late disease include difficulty keeping one's balance and mental status changes. A doctor (often a neurologist) will choose the best treatment for the patient based on their specific symptoms.

Comment from: disgypsy, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 02

Sinemet (cardopa/ levodopa}. Good results were practically immediate! I could stand and walk without falling. Could write normally again. Did not have the "mask" anymore. Walked with longer strides and my arms were swinging more. Already have GERD, so did not have problems with chewing and swallowing. Thank you for your information.
