There are many places in the United States and around the world that offer deep brain stimulation if this is the operation you are referring to.  Our NPF helpline 18004PDINFO may be able to help.

My mom is taking reuip and cardadopa levadopa and serequel, in very low doses because she's in a wheel chair .She is having trouble with auditory and visual hallucinations,she heard the tv saying things about the family and she sees people cats and rats a lot. She has depression,irratablity,and extreme paranoia. she thinks food is poison and that her pills are kiling her,that we are going to loose our house or that someone robbed us.It is very hard to get her to take her meds and most of the time she lets them dissolve in her mouth instead of swallowing them. I'm not sure what's going on but about a m9nth ago she started taking celexa for her deppression and she really lost touch with reality so we slowly got her off of it but I don't know if it triggered something but she seems like she's in a psychosis . we are going to take her to a psychiatrist but i was wondering how cbd and medical marijuana helps with or...I really think the pills are causing this she used to be on 4 times the pills when she was walking but it was impossible to hav3 a relationship with her. What do you think doctor?

We usually do not keep our patients on requip (we use just sinemet plus either clozapine or seroquel).  The medications could indeed be contributing.
