I have read some of the discussion on here about Atremorine. My husband who has had Parkinsons since he was 42 ( now 65) has been taking it since mid January.He had been finding after so many years on Sinemet, that it had become unreliable and he was falling and having balance problems. He is still working and so it was a real problem and he was contemplating retirement. He also finds Sinemet makes him very sleepy. Often he was overdosing through lack of confidence if he had a meeting to attend.
The benefits of Atremorine were instant. He is more animated and smiles more, he had reduces his Sinemet to 2 - 4 fast acting tabs a day and he no longer uses the slow release ones. His meds are reliable again and he is more confident as to when he needs another dose. It is not a cure, but it is the best solution that he has tried to get him through his days. Sinemet still makes him sleepy, but he finds he can let it wear off in the afternoon and he needs no more until breakfast the next day. In these hours he is not tired, but he sleeps well at night and he can get up and down from bed unaided. His balance is fine too. I was just about to purchase some more Atremorine when I saw this forum and thought I would let you all know his experience. Kind regards Nellie58
