My mom has been using Enbrel biologic injection once a year and has recently diagnosed with Parkinson. These kind of Rheumatoid Arthritis biologic treatments have a lot of possible side effects. Also this medication controls her immune system as well as her RA. On the other hand, I was wondering is controlling her immune system with that medicine bad for the progression of Parkinson? Should she stop that kind of treatment for her RA and choose something else? What kind of treatments can she get without effecting her Parkinson in a bad way? Thank you!

Sun, Jul 16 11:11am · How are you dealing with fatique and constipation in PD?
My mom told me today she is having extreme fatigue today. She was ok yesterday. She is also experiencing constipation problem. I will suggest her probiotic vitamins or supplements besides leafy veggies or salad. Do you think that might be a good idea to get probiotics or not? Also what would you recommend her for extreme fatique? What might cause that? She is wondering if that fatigue and constipation is a side effect of pexola? We really need your suggestions pleas.
@hopeful33250 As far as İ know we don’t have any Parkinson in our family. My mom also do have brothers but they don’t have Parkinson. Do you or does anybody have Parkinson in your family? Thank you so much for the support that you provide everyday!!-Gulfer.
@hopeful33250 I did not have any chance to talk to my mom’s doctor yet. She lives overseas, and I live in US. I am talking to her everyday. She says usually doctors don’t like extra vitamins or supplements other than medicine in her country. She has a follow up within this month and she will ask then. By the time I send them, she will hopefully ask him. She is looking for a good psychiatrist at the moment, because she is feeling little depressed and she has been using Zoloft and Decirel
