benztropine has anti-cholinergic and antihistamine effects. obviously it affects the CNS if used in parkinson's
My doctor has lately been pretty open to any suggestions I have since I have tried about everything but it might be hard to convince him to put me on this one. I did try selegiline, an MAOI used in parkinson's and depression. at a low dose, it doesn't require dietary restrictions so I gave it a shot. it works by increasing dopamine in the brain, like most other antiparkinsonian meds. worked alright, kind of reminded me of wellbutrin at a low dose. since I didn't want to have the dietary restrictions of an MAOI, I opted for wellbutrin. Benxtropine works differently so maybe i could get a different result. I have tried tyrosine, too. It is kind of like a milder wellbutrin, increasing dopamine and norepinephrine.
Actually, my doc has let me try selegiline and naltrexone (opioid-antagonist) so it's possible. If I tell him about a guy here who has been on an anti-psychotic and AD and had a breakthrough with this, he might go for it.
