Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease, which responds usually well to initial dopaminergic therapy.
Treatment of Parkinson’s disease at every stage from the initial diagnosis to the more advance stage needs long term planning; the occurrence of motor and neuropsychiatric complications has to be anticipated for a better result.
So therapeutic strategies are essential, as a unique universal treatment for PD does not exist!
When complications occur, compromises between mobility and involuntary movements, compromises between mobility and hallucinations have to be carefully considered; experienced neurologists in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease are the most appropriate clinicians for finding the right balance for each individual patient.
