  1. Gabapentin for Sleep

    Thanks, Mark. For the Trazadone, what dosage do you suggest to help with sleep? Also, I just looked up this drug and it says not to take it if you take an MAO inhibitor. I take Azilect. Is this contraindicated?
  2. Gabapentin for Sleep

    I'm 63y.o. woman with PD dx just 9 months ago. Currently taking Azilect w/ mild benefits, so dr. added amantadine, 100mg 2x/day. This really helps with tremor but has caused dry mouth and severe insomnia, resulting in zero hours of sleep. Even decreasing amantadine to 100mg 1x/day doesn't help. I've tried OTC meds like Advil PM, benadryl, and melatonin, all are of no help. Now she's added gabapentin at night for sleep. Is this a typical way to address the insomnia problem? What, if anything, do I need to know about gabapentin? Thanks for your feedback.
  3. Nausea and Neupro

    Thanks, I'll be more patient!
  4. Nausea and Neupro

    Hi, I'm newly diagnosed about 4 months ago. Started on Azilect 1mg with little side effects, but it did not reduce tremor. Dr. added Neupro 1mg patch. It's been about 3 weeks and I still have chronic nausea (mild to moderate). Will this go away? And how long do we wait to find out of the addition of Neupro is helping? Tremor is slightly reduced now. Thank you for any info.
