Stay Alert for Errors With Parkinson's Meds

You can reduce mix-ups with first-line meds for Parkinson's disease.

Meds don't slow progression of this movement disorder...but can improve symptoms, such as stiffness or tremors.

Levodopa/carbidopa (Sinemet, etc) will be used first in many cases...since it's the most effective option. But long-term use can lead to uncontrolled, involuntary movements, or dyskinesias.
