I started taking the new PD medication Rytary on March 9, 2015. My PD physician prescribed the Rytary as follows:
61.25/245mg CAPS- 3 capsules each day at 8am; 12noon; and 4pm
Still had "off periods"
Added Rytary-36.25/145mg CAP-1capsule at 7pm
then added same strength I additional capsule at same time.
I also take 2 Selegiline TABS 5mg at 8am and 12noon with Rytary.
Lastly, I take Gabapentin 300mg CAP at 12noon, with Rytary and at 10:30 alone.
Everywhere I read PD patients are getting great results. I am disappointed so far, still have "off periods", etc. I was taking Carbidopa/ Levodopa every 3hours, plus the Selegiline and Gabapentin at the same times as above; plus Entacapone.
How long does it take to work?
How long should I give it to work?
If it does not work, then what?
Are my other drugs affecting Rytary?
I have insomnia, could that effect Rytary?
What foods effect Rytary?
Any other guidance, suggestions, etc. is welcomed.
