Consultation and assessment

The management of Parkinson’s disease is multidisciplinary and includes medications and supportive therapy. The treatment depends entirely upon the stage of disease progression. The medications do not alter the progression of the disease but enables the patient to live a functional and independent life. The aim of treatment is to relieve symptoms so that the individual is able to perform his daily activities with reasonable efficiency. Levodopa is the principal drug of choice in the treatment of the disease. A good response to the drug is seen in most of the cases. Other medications like Amantadine, Anticholinergics, are useful in decreasing the tremors. Regular exercise, physiotherapy and occupational therapy are important for improving mobility and promoting the quality of life. Dietary advice from a nutritionist is useful for maintaining proper balanced diet. Educating the patient and family members also plays an important role in management of the disease.
