  1. Depression

    Hello, I am a 58 year old male, diagnosed with PD 2 years ago. Initially my symptoms were minor and I was able to perform daily tasks with virtually no problems. Recently, my symptoms in my left arm have worsened. I am having challenges with my increased dosage of medication making me feel nauseated. Yet, without my medication I cannot perform simple tasks. So I feel trapped and hopeless at this time. Prior to my PD diagnosis I was extremely active- I enjoyed running, skiing, tennis, cycling etc and I held an executive position. Now, I am unable to perform my executive job duties because I cannot get my symptoms under control though I would very much like to work. Depression Feeling useless because I can no longer work, play tennis with my son, etc. Constant anxiety about how quickly the PD will progress Decreased sex drive Ashamed to tell people about my condition so I avoid going out I have also recently begun to withdraw from my family and closest friends Current Medication Carbidopa/Levodopa 25/100: 2 pills, 3 times per day (*Note: I take 1 pill 3 times per day to avoid severe nausea) Praipexole Dihydro: .25 mg, 1 pill 3 times per day Questions I currently run about 20-25 miles per week and I am outdoors regularly working on rental properties I own Any non-prescription medications I can take to help combat the depression? Any diet that could help? Thank you for your support!
