Below are some links, handouts, and resources my patients have found useful. I will add more as I find them. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
GoodRX for comparison shopping among pharmacies
If you still can't afford your medications, go to the medication's manufacturer's website to get copay coupons or fill out a Patient Assistance Program application
Lifestyle Management Handouts
**Please note: none of these take the place of advice from your doctor. In many cases, headaches, neuropathic pain, insomnia, imbalance, or leg cramps can be the sign of another illness, and you should be seen by a neurologist to be appropriately diagnosed before you try any treatments, natural or otherwise, on your own. Additionally, depending on your age, medical conditions, and other risk factors, your doctor may choose medication instead of, or in addition to, some of these lifestyle changes.
Advanced Directives/Living Wills
Alzheimer's Association: information about dementia, being a caregiver, support groups
Psychogenic Nonepileptic Spells/Functional Neurologic Disorders
Online Habit Reversal Training Therapy
General Medical Advice
The following are websites that review alternative medicine's evidence, exposing some treatments that have been touted inappropriately as helpful. Some of these are dangerous, some just offer false hope. Remember to always read about attractive "complementary," "functional" or "alternative" practices with as much skepticism as you would approach your medical doctor! Ask about risks. Ask about benefits. Ask about research studies. Read reputable sources, preferably peer-reviewed.
