As parkinson's patients have to worry the medication of sideeffects on them and the progression of the disease, some patients do not take the medication regulary and accordingly to instruction by doctor, some total denial of the disease by avioding to medication. Some feel anxiety on the progression of the disease by taking medication. This is the non motor symptoms of parkinson's disease. Are you worrying of the sideeeffect of medication or anxiety on the progression of the disease?_________________to help the PD patients aware the diseases and encourage to set up support groups to educate the patients and their immediate families

I have Parkinson's for the last twenty five years. I do not worry about taking my medicines. My only worry is that the Sinamet will not cut in on time. Then I know my only solution is to go back to bed and wait for the next tablets session. Bern_________________If your face wants to smile, Let it. If it doesn't, Make it.

Hi Teo and Bern, especially the early morning doses. I take my early morning dose and then go back to bed set the alarm for an hour later and they have kicked in. Now there are a couple of things that can interfere, constipation, not feeling well or actually being sick and good old stress. I most often have a bout with one thing or the other at least once a week. Even at that Bern we are pretty well grounded but our age does that for us we or at least I have developed an attitude. A lady Dr. once told me something is going to get us one way or the other. My thought was not if I can help it........but no point to worry. Have a great week Teo & Bern Deeann
