Parkinson’s – Discussion Group and Education Series 

February 15, 2023

Open Discussion

Patrick opened the session with an update on a member of our group who is having some medical issues. Partick promised to share any news he receives.

The person who has been trying the spinal cord stimulator still has pain in his leg. The medical team continues to adjust things, but it does not seem to be as helpful as he thought.

Drug Information Apps 

A quick search on the internet resulted in hundreds of responses. The two listed below were free, seemed fairly straight forward, available on Android and IOS, and had good reviews. When looking for an app read the descriptions carefully and thoroughly. Some of the apps require a subscription (payment) or membership in a medical profession. Some only help you to remember when to take your meds, while others check for interactions, side effects and more.
