  1. Please help with your advise to a young women. Here is her letter "I have been taking Nakom ( carbidopa/levadopa) drug for almost 14 years, if I do not take it strong hyperkinesis starts, involuntary movements, stiffness on my legs, I can not walk. My diagnosis is dopa dependent dystonia or Segawa disease, but I passed the gene analysis to search for mutations, it's negative. Although the symptoms are very similar. What then the doctors say that it can be secondary (acquired) dystonia as a result of the infection I had. I have a hemophilic infection, that was diagnosed to late . Now I'm pregnant, the period of 3 weeks and I also drink nakom, without it I can not live. Dear friends. I'm very worry. What will happen to the child? He will give birth with pathologies? Here in my town - in Kazan doctors can not answer this question, as there were no such cases. About me : 24 years old, I take nakom 1/8 part, 250 mg/25mg three times a day, he helps me 100% to control simptoms and to feel myself healthy, but now , during pregnancy, sometimes the same dose does not help. THE MAIN QUESTION IS will be MY BABY A healthy CHILD? IS IT POSSIBLE TO INCREASE THE DRUg doses DURING THE TIME OF Pregnancy , AS TO ME THE 1/8 PIECE OF THE TABLET BECOMES to small for me now. WHAT DOES DOCTORS SAY ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF THE Levadopa/carbidopa to DEVELOPMENT OF THE EMBRYO? Thank you very much for any reply. It is very importent for me and my family! It is my first baby!
