Tips on when to start meds as received from my neurologist this last visit.
1.Meds do not slow or stop the progress.
2.Meds need to be adjusted as the disease progresses, not that the select med has lost its efficacy.
3.Meds are identified to treat major symptoms. Tremor being treated separate.
4.Falls and unseen damage to the brain in elder patients, most likely to end your life. The brain is smaller inside a larger skull. Thereby suffering a slight blow to the head, more serious and usually goes undetected as the victim is not taken to hospital.
5.Start meds to treat or prevent instability before you fall.
