I'm Takfing Sinemet 5 Times A Day And Am Having A Hard Time Stickiing To The Schedule. Any Suggestions?

I have not had a problem with protein, so I just eat what and when I want to - guess I'm lucky on that one.

The nurses here take full advantage of the " one hour either side" guidelines. Sometimes the doses are 3 hours apart sometimes 6 . My Dr had a fit. She said. " I am the Dr they are the nurses.
