My husband had a Neurologist/ Movement Disorder Specialist. He was prescribed 2 tablets of 25/100 Carbidopa/Levadopa three times per day, for a total of 6 tablets, for almost 5 years. When medication stopped working, due to Advanced Parkinson's, it was suggested that he take less, since the Carbidopa/Levadopa medication had stopped working correctly and started causing terrible seizure like tremors (perhaps Dyskinesia? )He then was prescribed Carbidopa/ Levadopa 25/100, just one tablet every 3 hours, for a total of only 5 tablets through the day. The tremors lessened tremendously.

I take 5-50/200CL and 7-25/100CL
It seems like a lot.

My hubby takes 4- 50/200mg a day and 1- 25/100mg. He was taking more of the smaller dose but has cut back now due to the fact that they are no longer working as well.

I will try this. Restless legs are keeping me awake at night.

I started with two after my first meal of the day. Then one after dinner. Eventually I figured out one at bedtime helps with the restless leg. Now I take three with first meal of the day, one after dinner and one at bed time.
