  1. When I first was prescribed Sinemet for my Parkinson disease I had to, on my own, find a medication that did not have yellow synthetic dyes. This is due to the fact that I am very allergic to them. The staff at my neurologsts said the pharmisist would be able to find one. They did not. By researching the FDA.org web site I found one, Senemet CR 25/100 Brand Name. This was the only place I found that actually listed inactive ingrediences. The pharisutical companies would not give out info on inactive ingredients either. It was the only med I was able to find at that time that didn't have yellow dyes. It was made by Merc originally and distributed by Bristol-Myers Squibb. Finally my meds had been working right and for the first time in many years I felt normal again. BUT THEN just this week when I went to renew my prescription, it was not available. The group manufacturing that Brand Name Sinemet CR 25/100 has stopped production for good. I now NEED a generic or brand name sinemet medication that does not contain yellow 5, 6, 8 ,10 etc. . Does any one have knowledge of a med on the market that is available with out these dyes? // Are their other forum members that are facing this same problem? // Your timely response to this request would be greatly appreciated.
