Mannitol for Parkinson's disease

I recently started taking Mannitol based on anecdotal evidence presented in this forum. Thanks to the posters for creating awareness about this option. I am yet to see benefit after 10 days but I believe it takes a few months to give results.

Disclaimer: I am taking Mannitol as a supplement at my own risk and any information provided here is only informational.

Please check with your Pharmacist in terms of checking drug interactions.

Mannitol is an FDA approved food additive. Here’re the articles that are supportive of the supplement as a possible option for helping deal with Parkinson’s

Hi Sweetc05. I have been at it for about a month. Hard to tell because the doctor has changed my meds and also added Cymbalta for anxiety. I feel good overall with just some gait issues.

I take 4 tablespoons a day with coffee. The Israeli guy who swears by it says it took him several months to see great results.

Yes. I am also taking CL in the form of Rytary. It is a slow release version of CL.

Are you newly diagnosed? If YES, you need to work closely with your doctor to slowly titrate up to the right dose. I also take Requip XL and Amantadine.

8 years since diagnosis. Panicked at first, but slowly accepted slowly through time. I am glad to be alive.

You are most welcome. That's what we're here for. To support, encourage and motivate each other.

Most important thing to remember is to always keep hope, understand that this is a very slow progressive disease and you are likely to be at more risk due to other Health conditions rather than Parkinson's.

So, rather take the diagnosis as a sign to take great care of yourself and continue to enjoy life as it is given to you.
