My name is Sergiu, I am from Romania.
My mother was diagnosed with large cell carcinoma neuroendocrine carcinoma.
She was treated, with docetaxel +carboplatin and readiotherapy (head and lungh). She is currentley on Tarceva(150).
As far as we know she is fine (working), with no active cancer in her.
Years before the cancer, she was suspected of parkinson (mild head and hand tremor). Recentley her tremor is getting worse (as far as we know not tumor related. PET scan 3-4 weeks before the tremor was noticed, no headache, no dizziness, no vomiting, etc). Maybe one of the treatments kickstarted her preexisting parkinson?
Does Tarceva interact with Levodopa? Can she start a mild Levodopa treatment? Can her body take both? How about other antiparkinsonian treatments?
