Patient : Hello, I've been diagnosed with Parkinsons since 2006. I recently had deep brain stimulation surgery to relieve tremor from PD, and it's working great! As a result the doctor has taken me off Amantidine, and comptan completely. Has also cut my sinemet back from 5.5 pills a day to 3. The problem is that I am short of breath all day since this medicine reduction. I've had all kinds of heart test and nothing showed up. However of my breathing test it showed I was not able to take in a full breath at all. Do you think I need to resume taking one of these drugs and if so which one. Thanks for your time.
