Parkinsons and CQ10

Anyone take CQ10? If so, is it in a supplement or do you take just that? Where do you get it and how many mg?

Re: Parkinsons and CQ10

I got the recommendation in a booklet on PD for 200 mg/day. They might recommend more now, but unfortunatel it's pretty expensive.

Re: Parkinsons and CQ10

I started my husband on CQ10 400mg gel tablets about 6months ago. He takes 2 gel pills a day. I found that he has more energy, and not walking as stiff. He also is on medication from the doctor called Requip 5mg twice a day.
He also takes a vitamin B complex.

I get the CQ10 400 mg. at the Vitamin Store. They have sales often, buy one get one free. It is expensive.

Re: Parkinsons and CQ10

While CoQ10 supplements are all but an essential part of any complete attempt at a supplement regimen designed to combat both the symptoms and underlying causes of Parkinson's Disease, it's an unfortunate fact that lower levels are essentially ineffective. In other words, CoQ10 qualifies as one of the few supplements about which it could be said that it's better to not take any at all than to take too little--and as our first member posted---that's prohibitively expensive. I would agree, incidentally, on the amount that member recommended as effective. Doses of less than around 1200mg/day have shown to produce neither any relief from symptoms, nor any slowing of the degenerative progression of the disease.

Re: Parkinsons and CQ10

I have only been taking 1200 mg of coq10 for about 1 month, but I believe it has been effective. The cost is $109.96/month ordered via internet from vitacost. I take 600 mg at lunch and 600 mg at supper--best to take with fatty meal so I've heard. I'm looking for a better, cheaper source. Best to take gel capsules rather than hard tablets--more digestible!
