I just recently was diagnosed with Parkinson's and have been taking Sinemet for two months (25mg 3 times a day). Many of my symptoms have gotten better (leg heaviness, hand and jaw rigidity, handwriting) but my teeth never stop chattering regardless of when I have taken the Sinemet. Should I be looking at increasing/decreasing the sinemet? Different medication?

If it is a jaw tremor, you should keep track of when it is worse and have your medication doses and intervals adjusted by your doc. Good luck.
