When you take Parkinson’s medications regularly and your symptoms re-appear or worsen, you are experiencing an OFF time. That seems to be a simple enough definition of OFF; however, it’s anything but simple. And when you feel OFF, it’s anything but pleasant. Nearly 35% of people with Parkinson’s experience OFF times (and this percentage increases with age), and they can negatively impact quality of life in a myriad of ways. But there are ways to reduce OFF times. In this episode, Dr. Yasar Torres-Yaghi answers questions about OFF time in Parkinson’s, including symptoms, medications, deep brain stimulation, and more.
