Scientists disovered that after a “honeymoon period” patients displayed new, worse side effects like involuntary writhing movements of the arms, legs, or head called dyskinesias, confusion, agitation, paranoia, and hallucinations. And over time the drug became less and less therapeutic and had to be taken in higher doses and more frequently. Almost all patients taking L-dopa were sentenced to future disabling motor complications. So I think that’s why Jon Palfreman wrote that’the cure was even worse than the disease’.
