Mucana pruriens (L-DOPA)

While I have been taking Mucuna pruriens as levodopa alternative,it has helped my symptoms as well as my tremors,
should I take this as a positive levodopa test, to help confirm a Parkinson's diagnosis out of curiosity if anyone has been through the same thing.

  1. Thank you for your question, George. We are not physicians. Therefore we do not endorse or make recommendations on medical and pharmaceutical questions, If you haven't done so already, I would suggest making an appointment with your physician or movement disorder neurologist to discuss which drugs would be best for you to treat PD disease.
