  1. This post is also in Young Onset Forum My Doctor suspects Parkinson's and wants me to take Carbidopa Levadopa to make final determination: How will drug effect me if this is not Parkinson's disease? What will it do if I have PD? How long/ how many doses will it take before I should notice a difference? So far at 1/day for past two days, increasing to 2/day next week, and then 3/day until follow up visit. Feel dizzy and tired for an hour after taking and then feel calm and more stable for a few hours, and then return to base-line so far. Additional Details I did ask my doctor pretty much the same thing, and was told if it is PD the medicine will help me improve, if it is not it won't. Also said that if I get worse to stop taking and call immediately. Looking for someone with first hand experience, preferably with early onset PD as I am in my 30's and finding it hard to believe I have an incurable disease that will slowly make life more difficult.
