Parkinson’s Disease – Treatment

October 10, 2021


At this point, there is no standard protocol for treating Parkinson’s, but there are a variety of therapies and medications that may be helpful, depending on the individual person and the way Parkinson’s affected them. The main medication used in treatment is called L-DOPA. This helps your nerve cells replenish the dopamine that they need. Other medications include medications that mimic dopamine in your body, as well as ones that help break it down slower. There are also medications that can help slow down the enzyme that breaks up dopamine, and the antiviral drug that helps reduce those involuntary movements and medications that will help reduce the tremors and rigidity.
