WebMD article with advice for worsening Parkinson disease

WebMD and the Davis Phinney Foundation collaborated with our co-director Dr. Michael Okun on a new article that is more of a mini-course called “My Parkinson Disease Is Getting Worse! What’s Next?” In this course you will learn:

  • The symptoms of advancing Parkinson disease
  • Why symptoms may unexpectedly go “on” and “off”
  • When you need more than one medicine
  • Why deep brain stimulation (DBS) may help
  • How a gel form of the medicines carbidopa and levodopa works
  • Questions to ask your doctor

Check out this article and thank you to the Davis Phinney Foundation and WebMD for working on this!
