Thanks for your question.
What symptoms are most bothersome for you now?
Are you on any medication?
i am on requip 3mg and stalevo 100mg 8 ties a day. i am very stiff in my arms and neck similar to dystonia and very weepy and having hot flashes iguess. my period will not start!!
this is likely due to the estrogen deficiency which can cause irregular periods and hot flashes.
You can consider starting estrogen supplement like premarin by prescription to help with your symptoms.
Over the counter, there is a supplement called Estroven, that may help with your symptoms as well meanwhile.
will this help the dystonic syptoms and stiffness and weepiness
sorry yousaid tht i did;nt read all the way
yes it should.
i m ALSO very weak feeling
and another medication like an anticholinergic ( benztropine) also can help with the stiffness and dystonia.
Orphenadrine is another medication that will help with stiffness.
The weakness will improve with estrogen.
Also get tested for thyroid gland disorder like hypothyroidism.
anemia or iron deficiency is another possibility.
ok what about vitamin b
Take magnesium 400 mg twice daily as it relaxes the muscles as well.
that is also ok.
Take vitamin B12 1000 mcg daily, and vitamin B6 50 mg daily.
You can also take vitamin E 200 mg daily.
will this b eokay wiith the pd meds
yes you can take them without problem.
Take at the dosage I suggested.
Also discuss with your doctor.
