Advice & Tips: 1. My MDS seems to think that there is some chance that this may delay progression, though this has not been supported by research. 2.

Advice & Tips: We added this dopamine agonist to my medication regimen in an effort to decrease my PD symptoms without increasing the actual levadopa which makes me pass out & feel very sick for hours.

Advice & Tips: Mental changes are not always recognizable by behavioral changes. Be cautious about using any medication that does not warrant use by evident and observable differences and do not remain on them in order to "let the body get adjusted". We always thought we were surely NOT one of the "30%" due to experience mental changes UNTIL we started into the undeniable mental difficulties in 2000.
