Diagnosed with Parkinson's, MRI normal, feel sleepy, act weirdly on taking Promipex, diagnosed to have cured. Suggestion?

was diagonalized to be suffering from early stage of Parkinson disease . The only symptom was minor shaking of hands while at rest and few occasions while holding a cup . MRI scan is normal. I was told to take Parkin tablets in the mornings and afternoons and Promipex 3 times a day. Promipex made me sleep and act strangely and talk unrelated topics twice and i have stopped it. I am fine now and my Neurologist says I am close to normal

Probably the dose that you were given was too much for early Parkinson's disease. You had the side effects of these medications. If you are reasonably fine without medication then you need not start it now. In early parkinson's which is not interfering with your daily activities drugs are not required. All the drugs are for symptom improvement and are not curative so use them only when needed later. The medication can later be started in a lower dosage.
good luck.
