Do people with Parkinsons get tired by late afternoon. Seems my mother is best in morning and early day then from late afternoon till night she is so tired and less energy. She is on Seniment 3 times and day and now Requip.25mgs 3 times a daybut still gets worn down by late afternoon. Most of all her outings have to be before noon. It this typical of a Parkinsons person or no??

My situation is similar.Anything important that needs to get done has to be done by around 3pm,after that my energy is spent.I'm on stalevo and mirapex 5x a day.check with your mom's neuro.Sinemet cr may help your mom in the pm.Wish you,and your mom the best.Ed

Thanks, she already feels she on too many pills a day but she is only on 3 sinement and 3 Requip .25mg. I will let her know there is a Sinement CR as well. Not sure she will want to add anymore meds yet as she hates the ones she has now but it is what it is I guess and who knows she may feel better with it. She really needs to know she is not on that many pills yet as I have heard so many others with Parkinsons that do have to take more then 6 pills a day. Wish she could get on the computer to talk with others and she may deal with it better talking with others that have it. She tried a support group once but she is not big on going to group stuff these days.  I try to do some research for her.
