      A Nuplazid commercial  claims over 50% of people living with Parkinson’s will experience hallucinations or delusions over the course of their disease.  I think this is a frightening commercial and I believe it creates unnecessary anxiety and fear with PD patients and their caregivers.   What do you think of this kind of advertising?  Have you experienced hallucinations?

      Yes, it does create unnecessary anxiety. My brother is also suffering from the same and it really becomes difficult to take him to hospital everytime he get conscious. Thus after consulting a doctor and experts, we decided to buy original Medicare insurance (https://www.thehealthexchangeagency.com/original-medicare-part-a-b/) under which we got the home nursing facility for him. This proved to be quite convenient as after this step, he was taken care under an expert nursing faculty all the time.

        Robert, thank you for sharing your experience.  I am glad you found a good treatment and care option for your brother.It must b e comforting for you both that he is under good care now.  Having s progressive, incurable disease like PD creates so many uncertainties for those who suffer.  Knowing one has a good facility to live in with good caretakers is a gift.
