?Remission? in Parkinson's Disease

Recommended Posts

I have had PD for 10 years, the last 3 of which have been marked by daily "meltdowns." They consist of violent tremors (hands, legs, feet, lips), cramps, "freezing" and considerable confusion. My medications are 19.5 Sinemet per day; 1 Lorazepam; and 1 Seroquel. Until August of this year I was also taking 6 Comtan per day until I ran out of the medication and couldn't get any for 10 days. I had to quit Comtan cold, but was amazed to find that nearly all of my PD symptoms disappeared almost immediately. Once I got my refill, I restarted the Comtan and after 2 pills, experienced my "meltdowns." I stopped the Comtan and have been symptom-free since the last part of August. I get tired for about an hour and a half to two hours beginning around 4:30 p.m. but pick up after that. I know that I have PD, but am wondering if anyone else has had this experience. This may just be another phase in the PD, but I certainly have enjoyed the past 16 weeks and have no complaints. I'm just puzzled at this turn of events.

 

I would appreciate anything anyone might be willing to share along these lines.

 

Many thanks.

I tried contain for 3 months and In addition to worse dyskinesia in spite of lower doses of sinemet, my off times became much, much more dramatic. My days were like a roller coaster and very unpleasant. Sincere contain also failed to increase my on time, so it was really an easy choice to give up on it. I'm now back to pretty smooth days on sinemet and Selegiline, 1/2 a 25/100 every 2 - 2 1/2 hours and 2.5 mg Selegiline morning and noon. Contain was not my friend! So, no, you are not alone.
