    • MM, I'm taking one 25/100 C/L three times a day.  The deciding factor was when I was in the ER with a kidney stone shaking like crazy.  I realized that I had no medical options, since the hospital doesn't give medical marijuana out to shaking patients. What would happen if I had a real medical emergency and needed to be in the hospital for an extended stay? I also have a multi-state trip coming up, and taking medical marijuana along for the trip would be a legal risk. The C/L does a good job on my symptoms, although it doesn't cover as many symptoms as the medical marijuana.  It also has more side effects than the medical marijuana.  Having said that, the C/L is more practical.
    • Wow, Patriot. I see you are now taking Sinemet. What was the deciding factor, and how much are you taking? I was always interested in how long you would be able to hold off with exercise alone.
    • Talk to your parents and see your family doctor😊
    • Thank you for taking your time to answer my questions.
    • Zach, You probably have low potassium which would cause the fasciculations.   There are a lot of conditions that can cause a tremor. Parkinson's at your age is really really really rare.  So in my humble opinion as someone with Parkinson's, I don't think its a possibility. Dave
