  5. valeria

    What is the recommended dose for valeria? i am still having trouble falling asleep and wondered if I could go up on it I am currently taking .5 ml(which I think is about 17 drops. I also take 50 mg trazadone which I grind up and take with applesauce. In addition I am taking a small amt of melatonin. Sometimes I think it works other times I dont I have tried to space it out like you had suggested. I really dont like taking medicine so I would rather increase the valeria than take more trasadone Thoughts??
  6. Rock Steady Boxing - definitely worth looking at

    I use it as a supplement to the exercises I do at home. I ride a bike, walk, go to PT do Tai Chi. I have been falling lately so I need a spotter. I feel better when I go and I enjoy the social aspects of things
  7. Duopa Pump Users-

    I had asked my doctor about it b/c I was having a terrible time with being off from 5 on. She said I would have to demonstrate more off time during the day. The only way I can stay on is to not eat anything between 3-7. The food was interfering with the absorption of my pills. So far it has worked but I cant eat dinner until 8. So right now it is 500 and I am STARVED but I cant eat until 8. I have been losing wgt I hope this doesnt make it worse/
  8. inhaled levadopa

    Thanks any idea when we will see it o could really use it
  9. Do you have any side effects and when do take it o have been taking 50 and I feel groggy the next day i also feels like it doesn’t kick in very quickly
  10. Sleep Number Bed

    I just add a foam mattress to my bed and it worked out great
  11. I live about 1.5 hrs from my MDS. I chose that for a few reasons. I felt they were better and were a center of excellence. One big reason was that for 30 years I have worked in the same building as the neurologist so I know everyone that works there. I am a private person and didnt want to run into people that ask me why i walk funny ect.. I dont like people knowing my business. As things progress I may have to move closer to home but for now it has worked out fine
  12. apokyn injections

    I have been struggling in the evening. I take 1 rytary, and 3 regular sinemet @ 5 or so and am off by 7. I have been taking 2 sinement when the 5 dose wears off could be 645-7 I was still off after that 7 dose, almost like it wasnt working at all. I usually eat alound 545 to give rhe 5 dose time to kick in I have been trying liquid sinemet to see if that would help absorption and it really hasn t helped. So I spend around 2 hours off shaking like a fish out of water. I get so sweaty I have to change my shirt sometimes 2 shirts before going to bed @930 My doc asked me if I ever had apokyn injections I dont know anything about it. I quickly did a google search and it said for use in advanced pd . I dont think thats me. I was dx'd 2009 and am still able to get around. Could you please explain what it is , its use and if you think it would help me. Thank you for all the time you devote to answering our questions
  13. boxing

    I actually have to have someone spot me otherwise I wouldnt be able to go. Maybe they could find you a spotter or maybe a family member could go with you
  14. GI Issues - severe

    What is the relationship between gastroparsis and PD? Would it have an effect on the absorption of the medications? I am having a heck of a time late in the day. Seems like the meds arent working When I am off it takes a longtime to recover. I also get full very quickly. How does one dx gastroparsis?
  15. boxing

    I have been going to the rock steady program near me. I really enjoy it, not only for the exrecises but for the comrodery. I have been falling lately so i havent been going. I went b ack last week for the first time in months and was so glad I did, They have someone spot me so I dont fall. It is more than just boxing you do other kinds of exercise as well. I believe there has been studies done that show it is helpful I would encourage
