Prescribed Drugs For Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis Have Very Worrying Side Effects
I have created this page to list the possible side effects of Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis medications because so many newly-diagnosed patients do not have a clue how much additional trouble they can get themselves into by taking some pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for Parkinson’s disease and MS.
Taking pharmaceutical drugs for Parkinson’s disease and MS in the short term, is often quite necessary and as a short-term answer, it is recommended, but as a long-term answer it is my opinion that every patient needs to consider the options and then discuss the situation with his/her neurologist. — Just remember, there are always side-effects if drugs are taken long-term. — When I was given pharmaceuticals for epilepsy, after only 3 months or so, I felt as though I was walking around like a zombie due to being left with no emotional expression and no enthusiasm to do anything at all.
Whilst pharmaceuticals for Parkinson’s disease and MS are helpful for some people, in the beginning they can become damaging to certain organs and immune functions over time. — My recommendation, based on interviewing hundreds of Parkinson and MS patients who have taken a variety of pharmaceutical drugs, is to be very careful about what commitment you make, to long-term consumption. — Pharmaceuticals should only ever be used to quench immediate pain and get you by, until you find the correct “NATURAL” solutions that will reverse all of your symptom causal problems so as to get your body and mind back to functioning as nature intended.
Here is a general article on the destruction caused by pharmaceuticals, published on a website called Health Impact News: – https://healthimpactnews.com/2016/doctor-and-co-founder-of-cochrane-collaboration-says-properly-prescribed-drugs-kill-100000-a-year-in-u-s/
Many of our most commonly used drugs, from painkillers to antidepressants, are dangerous and are killing us off in large numbers, says a leading researcher.
Peter Gotzsche, a co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence, … estimates that 100,000 people in the United States alone die each year from the side-effects of correctly used drugs.
“It’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs,” Professor Gotzsche, who heads the Nordic Cochrane Centre, told Fairfax Media ahead of his visit (to Australia).
Two of Professor Gotzsche’s biggest targets are antidepressants and the painkillers described as “non-steroidal anti-inflammatories”, such as ibuprofen, diclofenac and celecoxib. Another, sold under the brand name Vioxx, was withdrawn after it emerged it had caused up to 140,000 cases of serious heart disease in the US alone in the five years it was on the market – during which time its manufacturer, Merck was withholding information about its risks. About half the cases were thought to be fatal.
Professor Gotzsche says those deaths are only the tip of the iceberg and are representative of a system of drug regulation that simply does not protect patients.

Drugs and Their
LEVODOPA (L-DOPA):- Levodopa is designed to be used by the brain to make up for the assumed loss of dopamine due to substantia nigra atrophy. (L-dopa is designed to relax the muscles and overcome slowness of movement, sometimes called bradykinesia.)
CARBIDOPA :- Carbidopa is designed to try to counteract the bad side effects of Levodopa which are nausea, vomiting, heart rythm disturbances, anxiety and loss of relaxation due to anxiety.
CARBIDOPA and LEVODOPA (SINEMET):- Worsening of tremors or uncontrolable shaking. High fever or stiff muscles. Fast or uneven heartbeat, rapid breathing or a fainting feeling. Seizures, hallucinations, strange dreams, thoughts of suicide or of hurting yourself, depressed moods, severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, painful urination, or pains that spread through your shoulders and down your arms. Dry mouth, loss of apetite, constipation, headache, dizziness, blurred vision, sneezing, stuffy nose, coughing, muscle pain, numbness or tingling and skin rash or itchy skin.
The effectiveness of SINEMET usually wears off over a two year period. For those patients who do experience reduction of symptoms from SINEMET, and some do not, they usually report that after taking it for several years, the effectiveness begins reduce. This means, one way or the other, you need to search and overcome all the original causal factors of each and every one of your symptoms, something that doctors and neurologists are trained to tell you, is impossible, so they can put you on another drug when the effectiveness of the first drug wears off. Then another, and another, and another, until your whole life is consumed by trying to live with your symptoms and the side effects of the drugs they want you to use, to help you cope.
Some of the “Type C” Parkinson’s disease patients I have treated have been on blood thinners such as warfarin which can make some people become dizzy and faint, and slowly eat away the inside organs. — The most important thing I would like to point out is that in the many hundreds of Parkinson patients I have treated on my Five-day Personal Treatment Program, since 2005, not one patient has ever told me they had experienced really significant reduction in symptom severity from pharmaceutical drugs.
There Are Two Groups Of Pharmaceutical Drugs Used For Parkinson’s Disease
As a general rule, there is two groups of pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for Parkinson’s disease. One group is used to try to slow down the loss of dopamine at the substantia nigra in the brain, even though medical science has proven through many autopsies on deceased Parkinson patients, that in most cases there is nothing wrong with the substantia nigra. The other group of pharmaceutical drugs used to treat Parkinson’s disease, are used to reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, even though both medical and chiropractic journals have documented that the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and MS are caused by excess muscular stiffness and skeletal misalignment pinching nerves that go to the symptom-affected body areas.
What all this means is that unless the pharmaceutical drugs prescribed for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and MS are designed to relax muscular stiffness and realign skeletal misalignments, they will give no significant improvement, and they don’t. In my opinion, the only reason doctors and neurologists are trained to prescribe these drugs is to make money for the drug companies. Whilst some of these drugs are designed to cause some sort of relaxing effect in the muscular system, I believe that this relaxation component is only added so that some patients will experience a little reduction in symptom severity to give creedance to using the drug. If all patients gained no improvement at all for the prescribed pharmaceuticals, it would be openly know that they are useless.
What patients do not realize is that dopamine release from the substantia nigra is reinstated by overcoming stress and learning to love life again, which is one of the main purposes of my Five-day Treatment Program. Another important aspect of this treatment process that patients need to know, is that meditation, relaxation, yoga, massage, a glass of wine, regular chiropractic adjustment, learning stress management ideals and reducing lifestyle stress will create far more relaxation in the muscular system than any number of Parkinson’s disease prescribed drugs will ever create. That is, only if you have not had your symptoms for longer than 2 to 3 years, for reasons explained on my previous pages.
