Darlene, As you know the patch releases a steady low dose of estrogen to prevent osteoporosis and to treat post menapausal symptoms. I really doubt their is a connection between using the patch and having Parkinson's disease. If their was a connection, we would probably have an epidemic of pd among women taking estrogen. Bruce
