Carbidopa alternative

Recommended Posts

I have been using carbidopa 25 mg with each dose of sinemet to minimize the digestive tract pain and irritation, this has been the only way I've been able to tolerate sinemet.  Well the insurance companies saw the error of their ways and boosted the copays into the stratosphere, costing beyond what I can afford.  I know the other alternative is Domperidone but it's not available in the U.S. as you know.   Is there anything else or any suggestions, otherwise I'm in a jam.  I appreciate any thoughts you may have.

Thank you!

Some people tolerate Sinemet CR a little better, and some also Rytary.  Finally, mucuna is an alternative source of dopamine.  Good luck.
