Hi folks. Just hoping that there are a few of you out there who can cheer me up and offer a little hope! I've had PD for about 18 months now and as soon as I suspected I had it, hit it hard with lots of exercise, supplements and good diet. Trouble is, I feel that I'm not responding to meds brilliantly. I responded very well to Azilect but it's effects seemed to lessen after 6 months. So I added 6 mg of Requip but after only 3/4 months, my slowness returning with force. I thought listening to other posters that I might get away with this drug at this level for a couple of years so am rather disappointed. I have been under tremendous stress at work recently which hasn't helped but am concerned that as a non tremor type I'm in for a quick decline. Exercise never gives me the buzz and relief that so many get and coconut oil never had much effect. Sometimes I wonder during all of the sweating whether its tremor dominants who get this buzz? But I'd like to hear from any of you out there who aren't tremored and are - after a few years - still doing okay. Could do with a pick me up! Thanks
