I am careful, for the most part, what I eat, exercise regularly, and lead an active a life as Parkinsons allows me, but still I gain weight. I take Stalevo, Requip and half Sinemet daily. I ask this because it seems that people also taking these meds have the opposite problem - they are losing weight.
My grandchildren are being Christened tomorrow and I bought a dress, returned it bought another and so it went on. I usually live in trousers which hide a multitude of sins!! Either dress sizes have gone smaller, or I have to admit it, I have gone larger. I just don't understand why people taking the same meds should have opposite weight problems. Anyone have any ideas?
