Hello Members. We are fairly new to HU. I am "EElaine" and Husband is Jac.
We have learned much from member's posts and I am especially interested in members who have experimented with taking supplements such as mucuna pruiens and other vitamins. I also hear member's emphasis on the importance of exercise.
My husband, Jac, was DX w/ Parkinson's in 2015. He takes Carbidopa 25 mg & Levodopa 100mg 5 times a day. He plays tennis 3X week and sometimes finds he is taking too much medication. Main complaints: stiffness, sleep problems, constipation, tiredness and light tremor on his right toes along with early stages of poor posture, head sitting forward.
I thought you would be interested in this study if you haven't already reviewed it. It is listed in various places on the web - one site address is: media.ntu.edu.sg/NewsReleas...
I'd like to hear your thoughts on the research findings. Also, I'd like to ask how many of you supplement your meds with mucuna pruiens - and what other supplements help you the most? We're glad there is this great site! Thank you. EElaine
