I’m still driving thankfully and have had no significant degradation in skills while on Carba/Levodopa. However, the meds I started on, don’t remember the name, caused all sorts of problems including a real degradation in driving skills. Once moved to Carba/levodopa I saw immediate improvement.
Jim Brennan replied to the topic What kind of footwear do you prefer? in the forum Living With Parkinson's Disease 1 year ago
I’ve had good luck with Sketchers sneakers that have laces that are pre-tied. No need to tie them just slip them on. They also run true to size for me. In inclement weather my hiking boots suffice. Still need to tie them but at this point the loops are easy enough to manipulate. Gave up dress shoes once I retired, why bother with them.
