I have been on Madopar for about 6 months and saw my neurologist for a review last week. The I told him of my problems with impulse buying that has gone out of control for which I am having help from a psychologist to help me control these impulses. My neurologist told me off in that should have called his secretary months ago requesting an earlier appointment to see him. It was then discovered that the Madopar contained Levadopa which can cause impulsive behaviour among other things. Now. Due to see him again in 3 months once the Madopar has left my system. At the same time while I am being weened off it my neurologist has told me that should my Parkinson's tremor gets bad again he has told me to take one Madopar tablet in the morning and another at night for a week only and then take one tablet once a day only for a further week then stop taking it again. Now my concern is what coule he prescribe me to treat my tremor that doesn't contain Levadopa? What are my options?
