Unfortunately, western medicine seems to focus its attention too heavily on treating it once it's already there as opposed to preventing it to begin with. The problem I see with this approach is that many of the medications available don't actually work or are too riddled with side effects for patients to see lasting results.

"Sometimes less is more."

To make certain a symptom is not a pesky recalcitrant effect of ANY drug, one could with advice of a expert, go back to baseline as it was to rule out the possiblity od a untoward reaction of a supposedly innocuous drug. Nothing is inert. ALL drugs have the propensity to mimic other drugs. Just because it isn't schedule is not a good reason to think it has no morbidity or mortality. Start from scratch. This is not advise. Consult the proper authority before stopping or starting any medication.

Levadopa

Since this medicine increases or assists in making dopamine has there ever been a trial or test in ALS patients?? ## There have been a few theories and smalls test done, but nothing conclusive has been found, so far. It can be hard to get approval for such trials, due to the risks they post to the people with the conditions, who are force to forego conventional treatments.
