Sinemet To Sinemet CR

Sinemet To Sinemet CR

Has anyone switched from regular Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) to Sinemet CR? Are there additional side effects?

I have been on both and went back on the single dose because I didn't feel the improvement very fast . Now my neurologist has taken me off both so will see what happens

I was on SinemetC-R. The pharmicit gave me plain Sinemet by mistake. I liked it better. I found the absorption of the Sinermet C-r to be irrati
and led to on-off reations THt was just my experence.

The nickname for sinemet CR is "crappy release" because it is inconsistent. But the plus side is you are not popping pills all day!
