1. How many hours do you sleep at night (average)?


Consecutive hours? Or Total hours? Both vary. On a good night I might get 3 hours of sleep then I wake and toss and turn until I fall back to sleep for another few hours. Some nights are better than that, some worse. really varies


2, How many hours in day are your meds working .? (You’re “on” time)


Since upping my meds I have a LOT of on time now. I don't even look like a PWP on those good days. Just around the time my meds begin to get "off" (around hour 3) it's time for another dose...


3. Are you happy with your current med prescription?


LOVE it. hope the honeymoon lasts


4. How many different meds have you taken for PD?
(including those no longer in use)


6 or so


5. Do you use any health supplements to treat PD?


no
