nausea from sinemet

Recommended Posts

Gene    0

Is nausea a common side effect of sinemet and if so what would you recommend for treating it? Also is a strange acrid smell common to sinemet usage?  I'm on Sinemet 25/100 Two tablets every 3hrs for 5 doses.

Thank you and keep up the good work. Your forum is wonderful

There are a couple things you could try. One is a product called Lodosyn. It is pure carbidopa. Carbidopa was originally added to levodopa to limit the nausea related to levodopa. Lodosyn can be prescribed by your Dr and in no way will interfere with the effectiveness of the levodopa.

The other option may be to eat something small, like crackers, popcorn,  etc... something light. This should have little effect on the absorption is the medications,  as long as it is not protein. 

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
