What is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder that causes shaking, tremors, difficulty walking, drooling, muscle aches, balance problems, and slow movements. Parkinson's disease occurs when dopamine chemicals in the brain become destroyed. It is unknown why this happens.

There is no cure for Parkinson's disease. There are, however, medications to treat the symptoms. Common drug classes prescribed are anticholinergics, cholinesterase inhibitors, COMT inhibitors, DDCIs, DDCI / COMT inhibitor combinations, dopamine agonists, ergot derivatives, MAOIs, and influenza A inhibitors.
