I'm taking 3 milligram very large daily for schizophrenia and went to neurologist and she said I have parkinsonism that I have to stop taking it will it go away with time
Hi Phatgirl, firstly, do you have any reason to believe your doctor is mistaken? Further, without knowing what the medication is and how long you have been taking it for we can't give you even a basic idea of when it may subside.
Hi, Phatgirl! About 10-50% of patients with drug-induced Parkinson's will recover within weeks to months after discontinuing the medication. There is diagnostic imaging available to help predict the course of the disease and there are many treatment options available.
Best regards and best of luck to you! Wildcat
