Valerie on Jul, 29, 2010:
I am 70 years old, have had a quadruple bypass, have peripheral vascular disease (right leg below knee amputation due to clot) & I have had Parkinson's Disease for 19 years.
I was recently prescribed Oxycontin for severe pain in my left knee & as I am taking Sifrol for the P.D. I was wondering if this is not a good idea medically as I am falling asleep anywhere & anytime & confused and vague, etc.?? They both seem to have the same side effects.
