Nausea, esophageal spasms
Posted 04 January 2013 - 03:59 AM
I have quite a of dysphagia. Could two missed missed doses of 1/2 tab 25/100 between noon and six PM have caused spasms in my esophagus? Since nothing has helped, that's the only theory I have. Please respond ASAP because you will probably answer around 4 AM PST. Thank you.

Usually missing sinemet does not cause spasms, but in some cases could impact swallowing.
You may want to crush the tablets, take the parcopa dissolvable sinemet or ask about a temporary NG tube they can place to get medications down (a tube through the nose into the stomach).
Feel better soon.

Have you been diagnosed with spasms? I have the same symptoms and I thought it was gastroperesis. I am having esophageal spasms test on 12/13. But gastric emptying tests came back negative. Can you tell me more about your symptoms and what you have been through?
