  1. Hi, I researched an article which stated that anxiety in parkinson,is complex. pwp could have anxiety as a symptom of pd,side effects of pd meds,or anxiety about future complications of pd.Most MDs will prefer antidepressants to benzodiazepines,due to the long acting effect.But at the same time,some of these antidepressants do not work ,or only work on a short term,then the MD would have to switch to another type of antidepressants.I know that depending on the genetics,some medication might work for some people and do not work for others.Should't there be a way for MD's to know if a particular antidepressant will work for a pwp?Since pwp often deal with a complexity of anxiety situations.What will be your best choce of antidepressant medication for a pwp?Please take into consideration the side effects,when making your choice,as some pd meds already have some similar side effects with antidepressants and the additive effects might be overwhelming.Thanks for your anticipated response.
