HI! my father has Parkinsons and currently takes Staleva,(100mg)4x/day Requip 4x/day and Azilect 1x/day among many other vitamins such as Q10, magnesium... his symptoms have regressed in the last few weeks. Can it be that he is taking to many medicines for treatment of PD? He is 67 yrs. old.

When u mean your father is getting worse are you referring to his dyskonsia (involuntary movement) or his general symptoms. Also I never heard of being on reequip more then once a day are you sure its 4 times a day? How long has your father had Parkinson’s for?
