    Timing of Medication

    Dear Doctor Okun. I have found it very difficult to comply with accurate timing for the use of Sinemet. Would I be right to use the medications based on time intervals rather than accuracy of time? (i. แบน. must it be 2pm then 4pm or if I used the last one at 225pm I could take the next dose at 425pm for a 2hr interval?). My Best Regards.

    Mono Medication

    Yes Doc, I understand that Mucuna powder is approved for PD in India. My MD will be at the forthcoming conference and I hope to see her when she gets back. Do have a great conference. Regards.

    Mono Medication

    Thank you very much Dr Okun. I will try to get the seeds into powdery form and see what happens after my next visit to the doctor. I have found out that all these recommendations of supplements, Tyrosine etc, hardly ever work. They just increase the treatment cost unnecessarily. Best Regards

    Mono Medication

    Many thanks Dr Okun. Can I have access to this paper? My MD is not usually in agreement with any trials until absolutely convinced. Regards

    Mono Medication

    Many thanks Dr Okun. Mr Otolorin. I wish you a Happy new year too. I don't process the Mucuna seeds since many of the processing methods cause Dopamine losses. I just eat it raw like a snack. I have read in one of the replies on this platform that there is essentially nothing like Dopamine overdose. It is difficult to determine the effectiveness of the Mucuna as I have never used it alone. My Best Regards.

    Mono Medication

    Dear Doctor Okun, I have seen so many options and combinations of medications on many PD platforms. Please apart from Sinemet are there other effective and safe medications I can use? What is your advice on the use of Immunocal (Bonded Cysteine Isolate). Does any of your patients use it? Regards.

    Trying Sinemet

    Anyone having weight loss issues with the use of Sinemet? I also wake up 2 to 3 times in the night to pee. I am on 1/2 and a quarter of 25/250 Sinemet every 2.5 hours.

    Mono Medication

    Dear Dr Okun, I saw my doctor about a month ago and I complained about the wearing off. She mentioned Stalevo-200 which also not available here. She is reluctant to give me Modipar (I hope I am right). I will see her on Tuesday. Any suggestions to help with the wearing off? As this is affecting my eating. The anxiety has really reduced with the increased frequency of Sinemet. Regards.

    Mono Medication

    Thank you Doctor. I am following your earlier response of every 2 hours till I get to see my doctor on Tuesday. It seems Sinemet is addressing the anxiety issues too. I feel less anxiety when on? Any comments on this?

    Mono Medication

    Dear Dr Okun, I saw my doctor a couple of months ago after your suggestion on the use of Artane. Amantadine was recommended but not readily available. Can I continue with the Sinemet alone? I am currently using half and a quarter of the 25/250 Sinemet every 3 hrs. Also please is there anything like diminishing return on the use as I have noticed that on time is now about 2.5 hours. I now have the Mucuna Pruriens seeds. BR

    Sinemet Use

    Thank you you so much. I will keep you updated as I progress.

    Sinemet Use

    I feel I should give more details. The dose of the Artane is 5mg 2x daily. I notice that my thumbs shake slightly when I am not active though I manage to control them. My wife has complained that I am more active than my usual self when I am 'ON'. Anxiety has been there as a part of me for a long time but became more pronounced since I was diagnosed with PD and since I lost my job. I control this by increased activity. I saw a psychiatrist for counseling. My doctor is reluctant to give me a medication for the anxiety and I agree with her. Many of the PD medications that I have seen in the other posts on this forum are not available in my country. I hope you have a better view of my case now. Many Thanks.

    Sinemet Use

    Thanks for the early response. The symptoms are as follows when I'm off : Very slow movements, dragging of the left leg, stiffness of the left arm (no swinging when walking ), uncontrollable shaking of the left leg when on or off periods is approaching, general body weakness, anxiety which delays the on period start up, ulcer-like stomach pain,. All these become more aggravated when stressed up. Also I come on at about 40 minutes after using the Sinemet. I do not feel any effects on the symptoms after using Artane. Because I feel very uncomfortable when off I tend to use the Sinemet about 15 minutes before the 3 hrs spacing. Many Thanks.
