We have attended my FIL three month check up with neurology under Dr Knopp a very kind gentleman. He listened and heard how the last three months have changed for my FIL with clear changes and now added extended episodes of spasms which can last up to 3 hours. We explained my FIL would like help to stop or at least steady these and relieve the neck stiffness but without knocking out or leaving him doped up he is no way ready for that.
He has suggested co-careldopa starting with one tablet a day working up to 3 a day which could be doubled to 6 tablets today.
I just wanted to know if anyone has any knowledge of this medicine if it was beneficial, any side effects. This is all new to me. I want to be able for him to be comfortable but don't want to stop him getting about whilst he can.
