Dr. Okun:

I take sinemet early in the morning, 1 at noon, 1 at four and 1 and eight.  When I wake up in the morning shouldn't I be stiff?  I thank you for helping me out.  It really means a lot to me that you take your time to answer my questions.

Thank you very much.

Tim Wolf

Not everyone is stiff when then they wake up in the AM.  If you do have probalems with stiffness sometimes adding an extra sinemet dosage in the middle of the night or early in the morning can be helpful.  You may ask your doc about this approach.
