It seems that in the three months since I have been on Amantadine, Trihexphenidyl and Azilect for Parkensons, I have lost considerable weight(16 lbs).. I have very little appetite and get filled quickly. Can you tell me if any of thses medications alone or in some combination can cause this reaction?

I have had been on meds to manage PD for 8 years. By my experience any new medication can make you loose your appetite. However if in 3 months you have been introduced to 3 different medications, that is very hard on your body!  I would question why so quickly with all 3 meds. The specialist that I work with has always had me take 1 medication at a time than slowly add another if needed. Are you seeing a specialist?

I have been diagnosed with parkensons just 3 weeks ago, I have tremors only the left side of my body. Are there any good holistic approaches to this? Also are there other countries that offer more advanced treatment than the Us...Don
