My dad is on a surgery waitlist for DBS here in Canada (probably next year) and we could potentially do FUS in Switzerland... But in the meantime, we have been trying to figure out the best dopamine sources to help him on the daily. Mucuna is much more effective than his Sinemet, which barely works anymore. He is was recently on 1 100/25 Sinemet with 18 grams of mucuna powder. You can imagine that taking this every 2 hours and 45 minutes is a lot on the body, plus creates a loss of appetite for real food.
With Barlowe's (40% extract), in the mix (and less powder) he would experience unbearable sharp pains in his shoulder when his meds wore off.
We tried Dopaboost and its helped him a lot, especially in being able to reduce how much mucuna powder he has to consume. He reduced it by half, I think. (so is taking 1 sinemet, 8grams of mucuna powder amd 2 dopaboost) (i think!)
The Dopaboost has other ingredients in it (pls see attached photo)
Is taking 2 Dopaboost pills 6 times a day too much? What about 4 Dopaboost 6 times a day?
Im concerned about how much Green tea extract is in there (liver damage?) and if taking too much of the other stuff is inadvisable too...
I know, I just wish his neurologist knew about this stuff...
Thanks for any insight
