I was diagnosed in October,2010. Since my Neurologist indicated that current meds treat symptoms,but do not slow progression of the disease, I opted, initially, to go without. After 4 months we tried C-dopa/L-dopa but found the resultant nausea outweighed any gain. Tried Pramipexole = alergic reaction. Am currrently working up the dosage ladder on Ropinirol which, if anything, seems to be reducing the tremor in hand and jaw. I would like to experiment further, but this program has shown that there appear to be dozens of other medications to choose from. My neurologist has, probably, less experience than some of the members of this group so I put the question to you. I can handle the problems of tremor and even the saliva and its accompanying issues, but would like to find something which works for short term memory loss and approaching problems with balance. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give.
Thanx for "listening"!
