My wife was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1995 . . takes Mirapex, Sinemet, and Amantadine for PD. Recently has had heavy bouts of hallucination. Her doctor has reduced and attempted to balance her meds over the 24 hour day to see if the meds might be causing the hallucinations. So far this hasn't helped.

It also appears that there are different kinds of hallucinations . . my wife, Elinor is seeing things that are not there or happening, like there are critters in the house or our giant popular tree is moving up and down to let our neighbors cat pass under, and there are workers camping out on our deck in freezing weather. Other people talk about seeing "green and pink lace patterns on all white surfaces".
(Elinor does not appear to have any other symptoms of AD that I read about)

I was wondering if the Razadyne ER is going to help my wife Elinor with her hallucination problems combined with the effects of Parkinson's disease?? And, how long should I expect to wait to see results??
(she has just taken her 7th 8mg capsule)
Any other advice would be greatly appreciated!!

Welcome Tom
I would imagine it will take a few more doses of that med to finally kick in to help her
There is a Parkinsons Forum on here that may be better help but I sure am glad you found us
It is hard to look after those we love but rewarding isnt it in the end
I looked after Mom till she passed and now look after Dad he has AD as well
I hope I have been of some help to you
All the best for the Holidays and a better 2007 to you and your wife
God Bless
Lyn
