I agree with you. The whole aspect of the story about L-dopa, all of its side effects, motor complications and how it affects people’s lives was shocking for me as well. It’s also interesting how L-dopa can be called “advanced” in comparison with other neurodegenerative diseases. Unlike Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s or many other diseases, PD has L-dopa, which is not a cure, but it’s “at least something”.
