Chelsea Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company that specializes in the development of innovative products that address important unmet medical needs or offer alternatives to current treatments. We are in the late stages of delivering a novel medication that will provide patients with a much needed treatment option for symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH or Neurogenic OH). As many as 30% of Parkinson’s disease patients suffer from the often disabling symptoms of Neurogenic OH, which include dizziness, lightheadedness, blurred vision, feeling faint or fainting, and blacking out.
Chelsea Therapeutics is the proud sponsor of the Treat Neurogenic OH Now Coalition. The coalition is comprised of patients, caregivers and health care providers who are advocating for more options to treat Neurogenic OH. Through its advocacy, the Treat Neurogenic OH Now Coalition seeks to advance the development and approval of treatments for Neurogenic OH. Please visit our website at: www.TreatNOHNow.com.

Are your Parkinson’s medications not working as well as they used to? That means more hours a day with shaking, stiffness, or difficulty moving. You find that relief takes longer to kick in and wears off before the next dose. You have more side effects like unwanted movements.
Now is the time to consider other treatment options. One that may be right for you is DBS Therapy. For over 10 years, Medtronic DBS Therapy has helped people with Parkinson’s get back some of the things they thought they’d lost forever. Get to know DBS Therapy at medtronicdbs.com/parkinsons.
