I would appreciate any advice guidance. I have been dealing with a situation where my husband (diagnosed with Parkinsons a few years ago is becoming increasingly aggressive sexually. Is this a medication side effect (He's using Mirapex and Carbidopa/Levo. Does anyone have any recommendations/advice on how to deal with this?
As a PWP, let me tell you that as long as your DH is taking the Mirapex, he will only get more aggressive. The Mirapex is causing his hypersexuality, it is a direct (and serious) side effect of the Mirapex. I've been through that, and I can tell you it is not fun for your DH either. Talk to his Dr. and let him know that you would rather have your DH on the Sinemet (L-Dopa) only.
