Treating Moderate Parkinson’s Disease
As Parkinson’s disease progresses, symptoms become more noticeable and it becomes more difficult to complete activities and tasks. Everyday life becomes a challenge. Medications may start to wear off between doses or cause problematic side effects. At this point, your doctor may recommend physical, occupational or speech therapy if you haven’t yet started them. You may also need other medications, such as COMT inhibitors or amantadine. Your doctor may recommend additional medicines to treat drug side effects.
