Good Evening,


Last week my Dad had a bad fall and broke his humerous in four places. He has Parkinson's Disease (12 years now) and Post Polio. Walks with ortho boots and a walker.
In any case as a result of the fall, he had to have a blood tranfusion, (actually 4 bags to be exact), so his hemoglobin was better and he was released to in house Rehab.
He's having hallucinations (which he had before) and the Dr. had just started him on Seroquel. My question, how much time does Seroquel take to start working?
His regimine is as follows:

8:00 am- 2 Wellbutrin buPROpion Hydrochlorine 75mg ; 1 Namenda 5mg; 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

12:00 noon- 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

400pm-1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

800pm- 2 buPROpion Hydrochlorine 75mg ; 1 Namenda 5mg; 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100; 1 Lipitor 10mg ; 1 81mg aspirine.

If you haven't already you could post your questions on the Ask the Doctor and Ask the Pharmacist forums.

I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.

 

First symptoms: right-hand tremor, constipation and restless arms 1978 (age 25). Depression and anxiety (non-motor symptoms) began in 1989 and worsened through the years. Last inpatient episode June 2013.

Diagnosed December, 2010 by a regular neurologist (age 57). After negative reactions to Requip, Mirapex and selegiline began Sinemet 25/100 3x/day. First MDS visit in Houston in February of 2011 was inconclusive. Second MDS visit at Baylor Fort Worth in May/June 2011 diagnosis changed to Parkinsonism, Sinemet stopped. Third MDS visit in August 2011 in WA State: received a confirmed diagnosis of idiopathic PD which had started on the right side and had now crossed to the left side as well. Restarted on Sinemet 25/100 4x/day. A short trial of Amantadine caused audio hallucinations in September 2011.

 

Current medications at age 62: Sinemet 25/100 ODT every 2.5 hours while awake (7/day). One Sinemet 25/100 CR between midnight and 4 AM. Trazodone 200 mg at bedtime, Fluvoxamine 300 mg at bedtime. Clonazepam 0.5 mg morning and afternoon, 1 mg at bedtime. Vit D3 2x/day, Calcium Carbonate Susp. 5 cc daily, Baclofen 10 mg 3x/day, Flonase two sprays 2x/day, Calcitonin-Salmon nasal spray once daily (for osteoporosis). Gel eye drops as needed throughout the day, Restasis Eye drops 2x/day, Nighttime eye ointment at bedtime. 02 2L per nasal cannula while asleep. Walker, electric wheelchair, moist and soft or pureed foods and 115 caregiver hours/month keep me sane.

 

All of the above subject to change based on progression, stress level, and dyskinesia. Whew! I'm glad I finally wrote that all out.

You might check the NPF Aware in Care site and check very carefully the list of medications that can cause problems for people with PD. Here's the link: http://www.awareincare.org/.

It's very easy for everything to get mixed up when someone with PD goes to the hospital. My husband recently had surgery and the Aware in Care info was very helpful to us and especially to the nursing staff.

NPF posted this link to an article from the New York Times about the Aware in Care kit: http://www.parkinson...3c4e505/default

Sending good thoughts for you and your Dad.
