Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety...Parkinson's disease is mainly due to dicresed dopamine levels in nigrostiatal pathways in brain and it plays a major role in initiation and smooth movements...hence we have to supplement with dopamine no other choice... Consult nearest physician if you have any problem with medication they will guide you properly.
