Has Anyone Taken Inbrija?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone taken Inbrija? It took me 2 months to get it but I got it Tuesday pm & took it for the first time yesterday. It started working in about 10 minutes & full effect was about 35 min. I usually have totally incapacitating off times. Dizzy, lightheaded, nausea, shortness of breath, overall weakness, stiffness, hand & leg tremors, severe & painful toe curling. It usually lasts for about an hour-1.5 hours & sometimes my Sinemet doesnt work at all. I was totally taken back, praising the Lord… read more

Anyone Taking Inbrija Inhaler For Off Times?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband's neurologist just prescribed the Inbrijia inhaler to help with "off" times. He was taking the Apokyn injection as needed but it caused orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure) and it he passed out (Apoykyn is not like levodopa but similar to Miralax). Inbrijia is a levodopa powder that goes into a rescue inhaler for those bad "off" times. He hasn't started it yet but was wondering if anyone has had experience with this new medication. Thanks.

Rytary/ Carvadopa/levadopa
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Does anyone else take rytary and carvadopa/levadopa at the same time. I was in the ER because the medication reaction and they said it was because I was taking these 2 meds together. Just wondered if anyone else is on that combination?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member

My husband could not take Ratary. It was not kind to him.
Good old C/L 4x a day with C/L er at night

Does Anyone Take The Oral Disintegrating Tablet Carb/Levi ?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been taking this in between my other meds . Now none of the pharmacies in our town can get it in. Some say it is back ordered and others say it isn't even on their list to order anymore. Is anyone else having this problem? IF so have you found a substitute for the ODT form?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member

I saw my neurologist yesterday and she has me taking a regular tablet and having me chew it in place of the disintegrating tablet. Hopefully that will work.

The Dystonia I have in early morning or late afternoon is caused by low dopamine. I use my emergency med, Inbrija. It goes away almost immediately.
