In brief: Would not recommend!
Procyclidine is an anti-cholinergic medication which can be used to treat pd, similar to Artane & cogentin.
They have fallen out of favor due to multiple side effects & modest anti-pd symptom benefits. A much better choice would be azilect, then Requip xl or neupro, (rotigotine) then eventually sinemet. Stay physically, mentally & spiritually (if important to you) active to keep your self in best shape :) rmh.

In brief: Treats symptoms
Procyclidine is an anti cholinergic medication used to treat some of the symptoms of parkinson's disease such as tremor or drooling.
It does not improve slowed movements or problems with balance. It has also been used to treat drug induced parkinsonism. It is not available in the us. Similar meds in us are benztropine and trihexyphenidyl.
