My spouse takes her sinemet every 4 hours times 4 per day. She experiences significant off time at hour 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. Worse after am dose and better before last pm dose. She is also experiencing not feeling well ( stomach pain, bloating) after eating. Thank you in advance for any suggestions/comments.
Thanks for the hug ! I needed that!
I take my sinemet 5 times a day 3 1/2 hrs apart .Mine is opposite: I feel better before lunch time and until around 6-7 PM and then it is like the meds quit working. I use my Rollator walker All the time but when my legs start tremers I can not even walk with it .(I take 2800 MG Sinemet /daily + other meds)
Wish we could get rid of PD !!
The three hours works. Do you have any dyskinesia?
The 2-1/2 to 3 hours sounds familiar. But I take them every 3 hours
No, the current general neurologist didn’t like the extended release. We are going to a movement disorder specialist in October. She also developed dyskinesia with the sinemet. The extended release might also smooth that out a bit. Thank you
