      Many of the PD meds cause nausea as a side effect.  I have tried smelling peppermint oil to ease my nausea and it seems to work every time.  Have you tried it?  Are there other essential oils you have tried that help your PD?

      Yes I read it here! My wife takes generic caradopa/levodopa and she drinks a cup of peppermint tea in the morning. I bought a bottle of drops and it has worked now for about a week! So happy. Thanks to all.

      A couple of months ago I had to change my carbidopa/levodopa dosage [ I actually reduced the amount I was taking by half because of dyskinesias from too much dopamine ] and had such intense nausea daily that I could barely get off the couch for 2 months — I found that chewing peppermint gum helped somewhat where nothing else worked [ but now I will keep peppermint tea and oil on hand as well!]

      The spearmint gum helps me, too. So does a strong cinnamon gum.
