Podcast: Treating Parkinson's 'Off' Episodes

Podcast: Too Much or Not Enough: Dyskinesia and "Off" Time in Parkinson's (Webinar)

In this audio from our Third Thursdays Webinar, Michael J. Fox Foundation Patient Council member Larry Gifford leads a discussion on common Parkinson’s issues — "off" time and dyskinesia — and how to treat them.

Panelist Ashley E. Rawls, MD, explains why "off" time (when Parkinson's symptoms return between medication doses) and dyskinesia (uncontrolled, involuntary movement) may happen. She offers tips for talking with your doctor about these issues and what treatments are available. The other panelists, Rick Schwartz and Bryan Roberts, both living with Parkinson’s, share their personal experience with "off" time and dyskinesia and steps they’ve taken to manage these issues.
