Good Evening,

 

 

Last week my Dad had a bad fall and broke his humerous in four places. He has Parkinson's Disease (12 years now) and Post Polio. Walks with ortho boots and a walker.

In any case as a result of the fall, he had to have a blood tranfusion, (actually 4 bags to be exact), so his hemoglobin was better and he was released to in house Rehab.

He's having hallucinations (which he had before) and the Dr. had just started him on Seroquel. My question, how much time does Seroquel take to start working?

His regimine is as follows:

 

8:00 am- 2 Wellbutrin buPROpion Hydrochlorine 75mg ; 1 Namenda 5mg; 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

 

12:00 noon- 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

 

400pm-1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100

 

800pm- 2 buPROpion Hydrochlorine 75mg ; 1 Namenda 5mg; 1 and 1/2 Cardilopa=levodopa 25-100; 1 Lipitor 10mg ; 1 81mg aspirine.

You might check the NPF Aware in Care site and check very carefully the list of medications that can cause problems for people with PD. Here's the link: http://www.awareincare.org/.

 

It's very easy for everything to get mixed up when someone with PD goes to the hospital. My husband recently had surgery and the Aware in Care info was very helpful to us and especially to the nursing staff.
