Here is what my mom is taking : Sinemet 25/100 Mg 4 times a day
Sinemet 50/200 Mg early morning and nite/ .
Macuna Pruriens (natural dopamine supplement) - 4 times (half teaspoon or less) as more causes major dyskinesia. She is also taking Mirapex and amantadine for Dyskinesia .
Some other meds for depression, thyroid etc - which she has been taking for a long time
Just started her on NAC , Coconut oil etc
However, we noticed that she has excessive sleepiness lately. Stopped the NAC - then it was slightly better - then just gave her one tablet at 4pm yesterday but started with her super sleepy mode almost 18 hours later. I don't feel her new neuro is very good (she will be seeing another specialist in a few months) , because the Neuro said that this is lack of dopamine .. my dad gave her 1/2 sinemet - that cause dyskinesia while in the sleepy stage .
She is 72 and has had PD for 10 plus years .,, hoeever this is a very new symptom
It could be sinemet or mucana or melatonin or a combination of all three- and then accelerated by PD. Is anyone else facing this ? Any feedback would be great .
Can anyone help .
