I have been recently diagnosed PD. My gait and posture have been affected as has my facial expression, and I have an occasional tremor (right hand) which I can stop. I feel good. I am active and agile, and overall the PD is causing me no real problems at this point. The doctor I am seeing started me on Mirapex and after several weeks I am taking 1.25 mg 3 x day. To date my symptoms (gait, posture, facial expression and periodic tremor)are not improved. So, do I need to increase my dosage, or change medicine, or do I need to be on medication at all?
