I'd like to know how many others do NOT take medication for PD because of the side effects?

What other things have you tried ? Thanks

  1. Hi, - Thanks for your question. Have you been in touch with your doctor/neurologist about this? We have this article on complementary treatments (https://parkinsonsdisease.net/treatment/complementary-alternative/), but typically these are used in conjunction with traditional medicine. Hope you're doing well today. - Chris, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team

    1. I live in France and my GP and Neurologist insist the only option is drugs. They don't actually give a toss about any side effects. The neuro actually laughed when I told her Valerian and high strength CBD help me sleep. I have no confidence in putting my health, physical and mental, in their hands. I am dealing with it alone.
