I was diagnosed PWP way back in 1991 - at the age of 45. I was prescribed Beta blockers only for a couple of years, then a small levodopa - MADOPAR 125mg once a day. This intake is now 8 x 125mg together with Entacapone plus Pramipexole. Around 1993, I used to have lots of friends who drank quite a lot of alcohol. So I used to suffer hangovers. These became tolerable with some Ibuprofen - which also helped me sleep. Consequently I kept on with Ibuprofen, taking in child format (liquid) , a small dose of about 5 to 20 miliitres (= 100 to 400mg) when going to bed.
I am convinced that I've kept steady, with every PWP around me rapidly going downhill! I have plateaued!,
Ibuprofen is well known as an anti-inflammatory. I tell my supervising neurologist to all PWP on it. But he just says "it isn't proven"!!
I must point out that my sense of humour has remained in peak form , and I never get depressed -a positive attitude has ensured this. I don't stop - always happy with some DIY project.
Everyone around me say that I am going at 100mph.
