Drug management of Parkinson's disease.Can Fam Physician. 1996 May; 42:946-52.CF
Levodopa remains the cornerstone for managing Parkinson's disease. Physician's preference usually determines the dopamine agonist chosen for the early phases of treatment. The concept of neuro-protection, however, remains unproven. A better understanding of the cause of the disease and treatment-related complications could make managing Parkinson's disease more rewarding.
