Reducing dosage of car adopa/levadopa

Recommended Posts

I know that reducing carbadopa/levadopa too quickly can be dangerous. I am taking 7 25/100 tablets during the day and one and 1/2 50/100 ER at bedtime and one and 1/2 50/100 ER at 4:00 am. Is it dangerous to eliminate the two 1/2 ER's at night? I don't plan to do this without consulting my doctor, but am wondering at what point reducing the levadopa is dangerous. For example, if I forget a dose or half dose during the night, how dangerous can it be?

Always consult your doctor but eliminating a few doses is usually safe.  It is abruptly stopping all dosages that we worry the most about.
