First fase of Parkinson with depression.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Patient,

I read your question.
I do understand your problem. As you have mentioned it is a bit complicated to come out in a conclusion what your wife has and what the remedy must be used to improve her.

On my experience I would suggest you to keep on the medication that she already. I think she is struggling with depression. And she may be in the first stage of Parkinson.

You should try to use serotoninagonist drugs for your wife. Discuss them with your doctor or the pharmacist. They will improve the inner being and will make anxiety go away. I do suggest that you trust one doctor only and do not change the course or the therapy often.

Parkinson and depression need to be treated systematically and symptomatically, so choose to talk about this to you local Neurologists.

Friends and love are at high important so try to go out more and have more dates. I know it is difficult, but in your case I find it vital

I wish you fast relief.

Best Regards,

Dr. E. Manoku
