I'm doing this pretty much on my own.

sometimes it takes awhile to find the right combination of dosage amounts and frequencies. PD seems to manifest differently in each of us and we all react diferently to the meds. I seem to do best with a combo of Simemet and Mirapex, taking Sinemet 5x per day, Mirapex at 3 of those and then Sinemet slow release at night. How long this combo will work for me is unknown. but just keep playing with it - my symptoms are somewhat controlled, Still I don't sleep alot. Good luck


For me it has a lot to do with how I'm digesting, which I have no or little control over. Sometimes I'm frozen for hours and then suddenly I'm doing the one leg cancan!


I'm on about 10 different medications so when I'm screwed up I have no idea which one it is....


Too many meds? Ask your Dr. to narrow down the dosages that you really need. Also a pill box reminder set up works best for me.
