Hello,

Unfortunately, there is no cure for PARKINSON'S DISEASE (not referred to as syndrome if it the classic form of PARKINSON'S DISEASE you are actually referring to).

The CR version of the Syndopa is merely a designation that the medication is CONTROLLED RELEASE and therefore, theoretically it has to be dosed LESS FREQUENTLY.

If your father's tremors are not being quieted with this medication then, you should take him to see a NEUROLOGIST or a PARKINSONOLOGIST for the most updated treatments available.

There is also a SURGICAL approach called DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION.

However, more knowledge on how well your father responds to regular doses of his syndopa are necessary.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
