About the offer

Parkinson's disease is a neurology disorder that affects movement and other functions. It happens because the brain loses special cells that make a chemical called dopamine. Conservative medications are usually the first-line treatment for Parkinson's and help to improve disease symptoms. For example, they help with movement problems like shaking, stiffness, and slow movement. Doctors first diagnose Parkinson's disease. Then, they do tests, look at brain scans, and check the person's medical records. Physicians also see the severity of the symptoms and choose the right drug or combination. Common medicines for Parkinson's disease treatment are Levodopa-Carbidopa, which turns into dopamine in the brain or stops it from breaking down too soon. The second one is dopamine agonists acting like dopamine in the brain. Finally, neurologists might prescribe MAO-B and COMT inhibitors that help keep dopamine or Levodopa in the brain longer. Medications for Parkinson's can be used at the beginning and throughout the disease or sometimes combined with other treatments for patients with a severe disorder or those who don't get better with drugs alone. Conservative medications make daily tasks easier. By improving mobility, they let patients stay independent. In addition, some medicines can slow down Parkinson's disease.
