I just got back from visit to my neurologist. She ask me the standard questions including how the medication (Sinemet) was doing. I told her I quit taking it over a month ago.
The side effects out performed the benefits. I believe the medicine contributed to the emotional roller coaster I was riding. Now that I'm off it, I only lose control in private.
She also gave me some mental agility tests. I won't make the Olympics but I was above normal. That 's scary considering there were flashcards involved that I believe I first saw in kindergarten.
On another note: I inadvertantly ticked off a reader who has been recommending that I go to WalMart and buy coconut oil. He/She said it "might add six months to my life." I responded that I would take six HEALTHY months but that I didn't want to add six months to the end. I think I hurt her/his feelings. Sorry, but I hate going to WalMart!
