Why Does My Husband Still Have Tremors While On Carbadopis /levadopa?

Why Does My Husband Still Have Tremors While On Carbadopis /levadopa?

I can't understand what the meds actually do.Then i see side affects are tremors HUH? Also how do you know when you need more? And if you do take more ,does it stop working earlier over the yrs?

My husband's tremors were less when he went on c/l and his balance got a lot better. Before starting the meds, he was festinating a lot when we were walking, which led to falls and a lot of near misses. He hasn't festinated since he started on meds.
