The English spelling seems to be: Kemadrin.

Wiki describes the drug as, "Procyclidine is an anticholinergic drug

principally used for the treatment of drug-induced parkinsonism,

akathisia and acute dystonia; Parkinson disease; and idiopathic or

secondary dystonia".

Perhaps your father's physician(s) could look to medications that address norepinephrine deficiency. Some listmates like amantadine (I do), but many listmates have reported adverse reactions. Not easy options.

Requip and Sinemet (3 25/100 6 times a day 24/7 and 2 6 mg of Requip) together work for me. I do not have tremor.

What dose does he take.

requip worked for a few years, but the reactions to the drug got to be worse than what it was helping. weight gain, swelling and mental changes including cumpulsive behavior uncharactoristic to my normal (whatever that was)
