Does Sinimet Slow The Progression Of PD? Does Sinimet Make You Feels Sick All The Time?

Sinimet makes me feel like s*** all the time so I quit taking it since I’ve been housebound and while the symptoms have worsened somewhat they have not been as much of a problem as feeling as badly as Sinimet makes me feel 24/7. My wife claims that she heard one of the doctors say that the sentiment also slows down the progression of the Parkinson’s. Does anybody know if that’s valid. The symptoms are not bad enough to want to be trapped at home feeling that poorly.

Does Anyone Use Sinemet Instead Of Carbidopa-Levo?

I was just talking to someone in the drug section at publix who asked me why i did not take Sinemet instead of Carbidopa, after I had a problem with the new manufacturer they were using for my Carbi. It was not reacting with me well.. I did not know why my doctor did not give me Sinemet. Maybe because the price is higher?? I will have to look into that. My question is, do any of you take Sinemet instead of Carbidopa and why, and if you found it to work better,

How Do You Schedule Your Sinimet?

How Do You Schedule Your Sinimet?

I am just starting on cinnamon. Still on the 1/2 a pill three times a day until I graduate to a whole pill next week. As I thought about how to schedule taking the drug I stumbled when trying to figure out the evening one. If I have to take it at least one hour before I eat or two hours after I’ve eaten then what is the optimal approach. If I take him an hour before it will pretty well wear off by the time I go to bed but on the other hand if I take it two hours after eating it affect is… read more
