Hello doctor,

I am suffering from Parkinson's disease for many years. I am feeling tremors in my body and hands since yesterday. I have been taking tablets Stalevo 100 milligrams, Carbidopa 25 milligrams, Entacapone 200 milligrams, and Rasagiline 1 milligram for many years.

Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

It seems your symptoms could be related to levodopa-induced dyskinesia. I suggest you try a Haloperidol (antipsychotic) injection, which can help improve your situation faster. If it helps, I suggest you start taking Haloperidol orally. I also suggest you increase the frequency of the tablet Entacapone (catechol-O-methyltransferase inhibitor) by taking it more often during the day in small doses.

Kindly consult a specialist, talk with them, and take medicines with their consent.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
