Medications for Movement Symptoms

There is no standard treatment for Parkinson’s disease (PD). Instead, treatment is individualized to each person’s specific symptoms. There are many medications available to manage PD movement symptoms and it is common for people with Parkinson’s to take a variety of these at different doses and at different times of day. Medication is only part of the overall treatment plan for PD. Exercise, physical and occupational therapy, as well as lifestyle changes are also key to living well with Parkinson’s.
