Cure Research for Idiopathic Parkinson's disease

Treatments for Idiopathic Parkinson's disease

Treatments to consider for Idiopathic Parkinson's disease may include:

  • There is no cure for the disease but various therapies may improve quality of life and comfort: support group, adequate nutrition, exercise, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and regular health checks. Medications that may help some patients include Levodopa, COMT inhibitors (e.g. Tolcapone, Entacapone), dopamine agonists and MAO-B inhibitors, anticholinergic drugs - the benefits of these medications often have to be weighed up against the side effects. Surgical procedures such as deep brain stimulation and pallidotomy may also help some patients. Complementary therapies can also improve symptoms and the more notable ones include: supplements of L-tyrosine, ferrous iron, pyridoxine, NADH, THFA, coenzyme Q10 and plant-derived mucuna may provide varying degrees of benefit.
