Do I need to take Carbodopa/Levodopa during the night?

Will the Parkinsons Meds lose their ability to work eventually

Inge,

In very rare cases will Parkinson patients have to get up at night to take medication. When we sleep our body has very little movement. This means that little Dopamine is used at night to move your muscles. This results in a conservation of Dopamine. While sleeping, napping, or at rest is the only time our remaining dopamine cells can rejuvenate themselves. The short answer is, rarely.

Great question, thanks.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
