Survey of UK adults on behalf of Parkinson’s UK on the impact of medication for Parkinson’s.
Public awareness about the impact of medication for Parkinson’s is low.
- Half (49%) of people are unsure, or wrongly say that it is possible to prevent Parkinson’s.
- Four in five (83%) are unsure, or incorrectly think that there is no limit to the amount of time Parkinson’s medication works for.
- Three in five (62%) wrongly believe that Parkinson’s medication does more than mask or ease the symptoms of the condition.
