I take 4 carbidopa/levidopea 4 times daily and 1 entacaponne tablet once a day. The neurologist doesn't want be to take more and sometimes it is a struggle to make it through 24 hours.

I take 2 -3x per day, and I 've been getting some results. I t seems like there is a progression of how our disease is treated;
Azilect, which, if I'm correct, kills the enzymes and or cells that kill our ability to produce our own Dopamine
Then Carbo-Levo dopamine, which replaces the dopamine our bodies no longer product.
Them More Carbo-Levo dopamine.
Talking to people like my self that have this disease, it goes through this progression, plus other medicines if we're having some side effects with our meds:
exchausation, cognitive issues, etc.
Best of luck,
Hal
