Cap Sage replied to the topic Levodopa Reduction? in the forum Parkinson's Disease Medications 3 months ago
I have noticed the same phenomena, ie. not feeling worse when late dosing C/L. And I’ve also noticed feeling worse 15-30 minutes after taking C/L. I’ve tried to avoid protein 1-hr before and 1-hour after taking C/L.

Cap Sage replied to the topic Relief for Parkinson's insomnia? in the forum Parkinson's Disease Symptoms 3 years, 4 months ago
I too have had increased insomnia with PD, and have tried many remedies to find what works best for me. I have, and will continue to avoid drugs and seek the most natural solutions. Before finding workable natural remedies, it was at times impossible to sleep at all, all night. One time in particular occasioned me to have my…[Read more]
