  1. Subcutaneous carbidopa levodopa pump

    How long is the study and where is the study site I would love to participate but I had dbs I am hoping this works, What we need is something like an insulin pump.

    You are not alone my schedule is wack as well. I was having a terrible time from 500 on. I was spacing my sinemet at 5 and then again at 7. I found that no matter what I did the sinemet wasnt being absorbed so I was off every night shaking sweating ect. this went on for months. I finally decided that I would take a liquid form and i wouldnt eat until 1 hr after my 7 dose. This is such a pain in the but i can make it until 9!! I am still trying to figure out mt trazadone at bed. I take melatonin and velera root to sleep. After taking it like everyone else does and just take it and go to bed it didnt work So i am grinding it up and taking it with applesauce. I sit on the floor in my bedroom for about 1/2 hr then i go to bed. I am afraid to take the trazadone and walk around for fear of falling This whole thing is exaperating
  3. valeria

    What is the recommended dose for valeria? i am still having trouble falling asleep and wondered if I could go up on it I am currently taking .5 ml(which I think is about 17 drops. I also take 50 mg trazadone which I grind up and take with applesauce. In addition I am taking a small amt of melatonin. Sometimes I think it works other times I dont I have tried to space it out like you had suggested. I really dont like taking medicine so I would rather increase the valeria than take more trasadone Thoughts??

  5. valeria

    I went to a sleep specialist and she wanted me to force myself to stay up until 11-12 so I could retrain my body the only problem with that is that I was so off I could barely move one night I was so off I thought I was dying on theory it made sense but it didn’t work out so good
  6. valeria

    So basically I shouldn't go above 28 drops then
  7. valeria

    Could you please summarize for me ..basically with the info I gave you what is the maximum ## of drops(I get confused about ml) that I should take. I understand the idea of only adding 5 drops at a time until I find the point where it is helpful but what is the max or final goal not to go past I am sorry to be a pain in the butt!!
  8. Loss of Smell?

  9. Sinemet absorption with applesauce

    I was having a terrible time with being off around5-7. I went to taking my sinemet in liquid form and it really helped. Between that and eating later my off periods are gone

  22. Rock Steady Boxing - definitely worth looking at

    I use it as a supplement to the exercises I do at home. I ride a bike, walk, go to PT do Tai Chi. I have been falling lately so I need a spotter. I feel better when I go and I enjoy the social aspects of things
  23. Duopa Pump Users-

    I had asked my doctor about it b/c I was having a terrible time with being off from 5 on. She said I would have to demonstrate more off time during the day. The only way I can stay on is to not eat anything between 3-7. The food was interfering with the absorption of my pills. So far it has worked but I cant eat dinner until 8. So right now it is 500 and I am STARVED but I cant eat until 8. I have been losing wgt I hope this doesnt make it worse/
