Are you saying that the parkinson's symptoms are more active than usual?

Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

You have only taken 25mg 2x so far, is that correct? I believe you are asking if you can take more of the medication, if that's correct please let me know and I'm happy to advise you.

Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological as well as all other health/medical conditions. The previous expert has opted out from this question and the company has made this question available now for other experts too, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

I am sorry to hear about your health as you have described above. As a Neurologist I frequently diagnose & treat this type of health situation and I can certainly help you in this regard.

Kindly tell me the health questions or health concerns you are having and I will follow up with you and give you my diagnosis & treatment recommendations ASAP.

Are you indicating the PD (Parkinson’s disease) is more active now despite the treatment with the current dose of the Carbidopa/Levodopa - half of a pill in AM and another half in the PM?

Or are you telling you have been experiencing side effects such as becoming overactive etc since you have started taking this medication?

Or are your health concerns different than the ones mentioned above?

Please not to lose hopes or get frustrated, these types of health situations can be diagnosed & treated successfully, please try to get back to me and explain your health situation more - and I can definitely help you with your health concerns.

Kindly reply,

Best Regards!

Dr Subbanna MD

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
