How long does half a 25/100 regular Sinemet last in the body? From ingestion to completely be gone from the body? I've given my mom half a Sinemet around 2 am for about a week and she started to grind her teeth again so I stopped 2 nights ago. Yesterday she was so mobile and alert that I wondered if it was the extra Sinemet getting the credit but then she had not taken it the night before so I wondered if that's possible. She has not grind her teeth since yesterday so it is Sinemet that's doing it to her. A year ago when the grinding started she was walking by herself and moving very well but breaking her teeth so I decided to decrease it so she could stop grinding. She has not walked alone for half a year now but seeing how she was yesterday I'm getting hopeful again but that would start up Sinemet again.
This is why I ask do you think half a pill would last all day for her meaning blending in with her other PD drugs to create this perfect harmony?
When she sees her doctor next week and get the Amantadine to see if she will have more energy do you think it will help with the teeth grinding then maybe she can continue taking the sinemet? She was givien Amentadine for dyskinesia which is what her doctor said is the reason for the grinding but instead I deceased her meds which worked so she never took it. At the time I didn't want to have her take more drugs but if Amantadine will perk her up then I'm ok with that.
