I Ask This Of You!
I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.
I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.
This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.
Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.
This is a free site for all with no advertisements.
Thank you for visiting!

In general, it’s important to be careful about combining medications or adding to complex medication regimens, particularly when it comes to medications that induce sleep. These drugs might temporarily worsen balance or memory disturbances, so they should be used cautiously in people with these problems. When dealing with a sleep problem, the first step is to determine the underlying cause, whether it’s depression, motor symptoms or bladder dysfunction. Before prescribing a sleep aid, your doctor will review your current medications and investigate for an underlying cause of the sleep problem. De- pending on the problem, doctors will sometimes pre- scribe medications that are meant to help a person fall asleep or stay asleep. Sometimes, when a person is depressed and has trouble sleeping, they will recommend anti-depressant medications that also help with sleep. Sleep aids can be used safely in PD, but this depends on the individual and his or her symptoms and other medications.
