: my father has had parkenson's for over 20 years. for the last 10 years by 10 o'clock his meds have worn off and he can no longer walk. last night he had a four hour time span where he could walk fine and his legs didn't hurt and he could even turn over in bed. then it was gone. i would love to know if anyone else has had this experence.
Yes, I have "been there" also. You can, if possible, tske his pd drug(s) at bed time or add a drug such as comtan which extends the effects of Sinemet. I don't know if what I described fits your situation, but if it continues to be a problem, he should schedule an appointment with his doctor, preferably a neurologist that specializes in movement disorders.
