Drugs for Parkinson Disease

Parkinson disease is caused due to the loss of nerve cells in a particular part of the brain. It affects muscular movements like walking, talking and writing. It causes depression among the patients too. It can be identified by only blood tests and brain scans. When there is deficiency or loss of dopamine chemical it results in Parkinson Disease. This chemical sends signals to the muscles for coordinating movement. Medicines will reduce the symptoms of the disease but not completely. You can identify Parkinson’s disease by symptoms like tremors, slow movement, rigid muscles and difficulty in swallowing. This usually occurs after the age of 50.
