I wonder if controlled release Sinemet medication might stretch out your mother's 'on time' and thereby her ability to sleep for longer intervals. I believe it comes in 50/200 tablets. Unfortunately, if your Mom's conditon is like mine, then four hours between re-upppng her medication is going to be the limit. As noted elsewhere previously, a PWP cannot sleep unmedicated. I assume you've attempted to have a heart to heart converstion with your mother about the absolute necessity of her maximum cooperation and that it has not been effective. Best of luck to you kita68.
I heard lately there is a "window"when the drug will work. After the drug passes through the small intestine it becomes mute.So we have to find a way to keep the drug active throughout its presense.
I wake up every morning about 3 am.Thats about the time the drug has stopped being absorbed.I do go back to sleep though as long I use my CPAC
Using the method from Dr. low is my RX for any anxiety or emotional discomfort.
Hope all is well with you Roger.
