Untreatable Dyskinesia

Recommended Posts

otolorin    28

Dear doc,

                for some people who take C/L  and have developed dyskinesia,what are the options left if amantadin and dose rescheduling does not work.If a pwp is unable to deal with side effects of other agonists and C/L  is the only drug that works, except dyskinesia.Then what do you do,other than DBS?Does mucuna p cause less frequent dyskinesia as claimed compared to  C/L? 

I would appreciate your insight.

We usually will try lower doses of carbidopa/levodopa or madopar and give them more frequently and often we simply to just this one PD med.  If that approach doesn't work we may try duopa or DBS.  I have not had much luck with Mucuna in this setting, but little experience.
