In part 2 of The SavvyCast podcast on Parkinson's Disease, Dr. Mike Vaughn shares the best drugs for PD patients, including prescription and one OTC supplement.
Since diagnosing his own PD, Dr. Vaughn has spent countless hours researching medical abstracts, studies, and journal publications. This podcast specifically addresses the best choices for high blood pressure meds, statins, depression, and sleep.
Dr. Vaughn recommends Telmisartan for anyone with PD who has HBP. Based on his research, Dr. Vaughn takes Telmisartan for its purported PD benefits, even though he does NOT have HBP.
Based on Dr. Vaughn's research, he recommends two specific statins, either lipitor or zocor. Again, he does not have high cholesterol but takes one of these statins for its possible benefits for his PD.
Dr. Vaughn considers melatonin is literally a miracle drug. Inexpensive. Over the counter. Inflammation fighting. He discusses in the podcast how it helps the brain "clean itself" at night.
