Fortunately for me, my PM&R physician recognized my symptoms as PBA. He prescribed Nuedexta, and the results were very fast and almost miraculous. I stopped laughing right away and the crying eased a couple weeks later. Unfortunately, this drug is terribly expensive and private insurance copays may be prohibitive to many survivors, especially those with financial worries already. But PBA is real and is an unsettling new diagnosis for survivors to deal with. Nuedexta offers a real answer to symptoms, if you can afford it. I’ve been able, with my doctor’s ok, to halve my dose over time, saving me some money.
