Skippy, I tried searching on new drugs for parkinsons and was only able to find a drug that was approved last spring. However, since it appears that the supplier didn't start actively marketing it until October, maybe that is what you saw. The new drug is used to treat the psychosis that can occur with Parkinsons. The difference between this new one and the old drugs they used for Parkinson's psychosis is that this new one is compatible with the dopamine system where the old psychosis meds blocked dopamine and thereby impaired any movement gains.

As for attaching links, you need to be in the Full Editor (button at bottom of Quick Reply Screen). In the full editor, there are a series of buttons long the top of the section where you type your note. One of the says URL. Click on it and then past the Internet address for your link between the two [url ] symbols.

I looked up the drug on internet and it turns out to be not a prescription drug but something that can be ordered online. It is called Atremorine. It sounds too good to be true but maybe there is something to it.

You're right about the sounding too good part. Their website has all the indicators of being a scam, including the fact that half of the google search hits came back in Spanish and the scientific proof is a researcher's resume rather than any sort of study. Try it if you want, but I think that I will save my money and move on.
