Parkinson’s “Off” Time: What It Looks Like, and How to Manage It
Thursday, 30th September 2021
What does it mean when we say that Parkinson’s can go from “off” to “on” and then back to “off” again? Listen as experts discuss these “off” periods — those times when medication can wear off between doses, or are not working optimally, and symptoms can return. This episode will share steps you can take to manage “off” time, including how you can communicate with doctors and care partners about what you’re experiencing and ongoing research to decrease or treat these episodes.
