I am hoping someone here can help me. My dad (late 60's) was recently diagnosed w/ the beginning stages of Parkinson's Disease. They are wanting to send him to Nashville, TN for further testing. He is on several different medications and I was wondering if perhaps any of these medications or them combined could be causing him to appear to have this and him not really have it. Here is a list of what he is taking. I'm very scared for him and very new to learning about this disease.
Metoproldtartrate - for high blood pressure
Lovastatin - cholesetrol
Arthrotec - arthritis
Captopril - another blood pressure med.
Isoforbide Mononitrate - heart med.
Norvase - blood pressure
Hydrochlorothiazide - water/blood pressure
Darviset - pain med.
Thank you for any information anyone can share with me. Rhonda

Are they listed in the phone book or is this something that I will need to find on the internet? I have never heard of this exact title. Thank you so much for being so patient and guiding me in my search for answers.
