Another Question

Just wondering, is there a point at which increasing the dosage actually ends up increasing the symptoms that had been taken care of by a lower dose? Is the test of how much is enough really just deciding when enough is enough to make life reasonably tolerable? I'm just wondering about this types of simple things right now. Thanks.

Increasing Parkinson's symptoms: No

If you have developed dyskinesias: It's possible

I've been told that increasing the dosage of L-dopa beyond the therapeutic level has limited benefit. that is, doubling the dose that I get a beneficial response from will have minimal positive effect. I think it's best described as a point of diminishing returns. 

 

 

As I understand it.
