titrating

Recommended Posts

Dr. okun:

I am titrating down on my sinemet to see if I have parkinsons.  I am doing this for my next visit at my nuero appointment. At first my dosage (all in a weeks time) was 1112, then 1111, then 111, then just 1.  Isn't this rather fast? Would you please shed some light on this.

Thank you

Tim Wolf

This should be discussed between you and your doctor.  In our practice we have no standard practice but if possible we wean slowly over several weeks.

I appologize sir.  This is being done over several weeks.  Not just one week.  Sorry about that.

Thanks

Dr. Okun:

Let me try this one more time.  first week 1112.  Second week 1111.  Third week 111.  fourth week 11.  Fifth week 1.  Does that seem to fast?

Thanks 

Tim

A five week titration would seem ok, but we don't get into specifics on the web forum, only generalities-- you need to be managed in person.  I am sure you understand that we want to help with some general guidance only, but all medical decisions need to be between you and your doctor (team).
