Parkinson’s is the world’s fastest growing neurological condition. It can affect anyone at any age. For 60 years people with Parkinson’s have been relying on the same drug, called levodopa, to help control some of the symptoms, but levodopa doesn’t slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s progress. Over time, levodopa becomes less effective as symptoms worsen. People with Parkinson’s can experience a range of many symptoms including problems with movement, difficulties speaking, disrupted sleep, severe muscle cramps, extreme pain as well as problems with brain function.
We are working hard to change this story; Cure Parkinson’s sole focus is to find a cure!

Cough syrups containing pholcodine have been recalled across the UK under MHRA guidance ‘as a precaution’. Household cough syrups and lozenges containing pholcodine are being withdrawn and include Day & Night Nurse and Covonia — as well as own-brand versions sold in Boots and Superdrug. Ambroxol is a completely different type of drug and is totally unrelated to pholcodine.
