What meds are you using while you wait for Carb/ levo to kick in?

When you experience a complete wear-off that produce sever tremors, what do you do or take while waiting for meds to kick in?
On occasion I have waited 2.5- 3 hours for meds to kick in. Too long to endure....
I just started trying the liquid carb/levo dissolving in Vit C. It did seems to act quicker, but this isn't always an option for me.
Any solutions that work for you? I know we are all different, but still would like to know what works for some.
Thanks, I'm soooo ready for spring....

But, there are some days that I can barely move regardless of medication.

My father's neurologist suggested that, when the meds aren't working, he can take 1/8-1-4 of a Dopicar. Duh just realized that that is Carbi/levo.
I recently tried some guided imagery with him and it did provide some temporary relief. I had him lye back with his eyes closed an pretend that he was lying on a sunny beach, hearing the waves crash on shore (we were in the noisy fluorescent ER) and I had him take slow deep breaths. I think that this shows promise and want to try it out some more.

I have tried yoga style breathing and have had limited success if I can catch it prior to a complete wear -off.
