My mother has had PD for almost 22 years and while she has always had tremors, they were well controlled. She was put in hospital on January 28th for anemia and bronchitis and while there had one episode that lasted 5 hours before they finally stopped with new medication. This week she has had major episodes every night and we are having to give her more and more medication to get them to stop. She will fight them, and not let the medication work and won't relax. I have contacted her neurologist and also her primary care doctor to get advice, but also wanted some "real world" advice. I know every PD patient is different, but wanted to know if you have found anything that works.
She is currently taking Zanaflex for the tremors and we have had to add back the Parafon and Ativan in order for them to stop.
