Dear Dr. Okun
please I need to take your opinion about "Vinpocetine"?
I want to try it with my father with PD, what do you think?
I read a lot about it, there is some links below
but he is already on 81mg aspirin protective daily
& they don't recommend it with blood thinner & antiplatelets
do you think I can give him every other day alternating with aspirin?
I mean one day aspirin & next day Vinpocetine and so on?
Thank you so much Sir for your kindness & great help
thank you so much Dr.Okun I will start him on mucuna today, unfortunately Azilect is giving him hard time with constipation so I will reduce its dose from 1mg to 0.5 mg/day, I hope this will help him thanks again Dr.Okun for your kind reply & great help
my father has PD he is on Azilect (Rasalgine) for one month now with little effect, and I read a lot about Mucuna Prurines & I want to try it with him but I read some comments that Mucuna should not be giving with Azilect but I don't know why? if anyone is taking them together? please let us know your experience or if anyone knows why they should not be taking together please let us know thank you so much
first thank you so much for your great helpful posts!
I am a physician, and my father 78 had signs of PD for 5years now (bradykinesia, PD gait, very little tremors). he was doing well though, so I wasn't keen to start him on any medication, only CoQ10, supplements & exercise and he was doing ok
this last year his bradykinesia is getting more & unable to walk & exercise as he used to,
last month I started him on Rasagiline 1mg/d with little improvement, now I want to add Sinemet
After I read a lot about Mucuna prurines I decided to try it instead of Sinemet
my question is: can I add it with Rasagiline or better to withdraw Rasagiline then introduce Mucuna?
Thank you so much!
I mean is it safe to take Rasagiline 1mg/day with Mucuna (2tab=120mg L-Dopa/day )
Thank you so much
