  • Effects of syndopa

    My mother in law was diagnosed with Parkinsons 4 years ago. the past few months she has been on a dose of Syndopa twice during the day (half tablet each time). for the past 3 days she has stopped taking the medication because she found that there was a huge amount of rigidity in her body. since then she is moving more freely and is having fewer hallucinations. However, today she had some breathlessness on walking. Is this symptom related to her not taking syndopa anymore? what should we expect further along the way?

  • Husband

    My husband has great difficulty getting out of a chair, turning over in bed. When he puts his hands together like washing his hands, his hands and arms tremble very visibly. He is under the care of a neurologist. He has had an MRI, a ct angiogram, a 4 hr psychology test twice by same doctor. He had a pacemaker put in in April 2011. He takes named, lexapro, losartin, aggrenox, vitamins, multiple, fish oil, preservation and vitamin d. Still trying to find a diagnosis. Sometimes with it, sometimes not. First itvwas Parkinson’s then no it’s Parkinsonism. Now it’s we don’t know but it is not Alzheimer’s
