Brief Answer:
It can help in certain cases.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns. Lantox can help in certain features of Parkinson like excessive sialorhea ( drooling), "off" dystonia and in severe constipation, but not in Parkinson disease itself. Hope this helps. If you have further questions feel free to ask.

I heard about stem shots done in San XXXXXXX CA. Did you hear anything about it? Just one shot($15.000). They claimed it helps right away. They sent me all the info. But it sound risky.

Brief Answer:
Still experimental phase.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again. There are some reports from about three years now that stem cells implantion works in treating symptoms of Parkinson's. Yet scientific long term data are lacking. Risks of procedure ( stereotactic surgery) are those of the procedure used for other purposes. This kind of treatment is in its first steps. Hope this helps.
