The guy Im going to has 15 year experience. Have been seen by 2. He put me on meripex 0.75 I believe. I haven't had any side effects really except I am noticing not as much concentration and thinking problems. Without it, I am constantly falling.. bruising my hips, not able to talk right, shaking (just nonfunctional).. Luckily Im 35 and my bones are still in good shape. It sucks feeling dependant on daily living and functioning on this stuff. I am just afraid hes gave me one that will wear off and it wont be any use for me later on when I need it really bad.
My doctor never staged me so I am not sure what stage im in. I know all to well about the stress, i get upset and I shake and my arms move.. its really embarrassing.. I do question if stress can actually cause Parkinsons to progress faster?
Thank you so much, I will remember that medicaiton as a last resort.

The key is not to use too much and to spread out the dosing to avoid peaks and valleys. This may also delay or prevent dyskinsia and other side effects
...stress can and will aggravate your symptoms...or may trigger them as well.
