Alternative to Lodosyn?

Recommended Posts

I have been taking Carbidopa 25 mg with each dose of sinemet, otherwise I get really nauseous along with digestive distress.  Well the drug mfg' s have seen the opportunity to gouge for this drug.  Now that the copays are ridiculous, it's become unaffordable.  Are there any suggestions for taking sinemet to offset the side effects?  

I've changed drug coverage three times in three years because once they see the cost of the carbidopa I get a letter saying they're terminating coverage of Carbidopa.

I appreciate your thoughts and continued tireless support of the PD community.  Thank you!

Steve

Steve, one option may be the Sinemet 50/200 which has a little more carbidopa.  You should also have your docs send an appeal letter.  I am so sorry to hear this!

Thank you for the suggestions.  It's ridiculous how the price of medicine has skyrocketed, many times just because they can.  

I sincerely appreciate your information,

Steve
