For those who care for someone with Parkinson's disease
Carl has had sleep issues for the last two years. Heís tried melatonin (Still takes it), slow acting Sinemet, sleeping pills, and just got a prescription for Tera-something (sorry, we arenít home right now), but nothing helps. He is active daily, stops watching tv, no caffeine at night, etc. He falls asleep, but wakes up 2-3 hours later and cannot go back to sleep! Itís literally driving him crazy!
