I have been making liq sinemet for use @ 5  and 7 pm

I started making it in the morning and then I have been putting it in the refrigorator 

It could be my imagination but it doesnt seem to as well.

Is it safe to make it ahead 

does the temp when you drink it make a difference

Noah,

Once it is made in the morning it should be good all day. You are keeping it in the refrigerator, which is the correct thing to do. The only thing that may be an issue is that you have to vigorously shake it before each and every use.

Also, different refrigerator's have different temperature zones within the cabinet. I notice that when I put something in the back on the top shelf it has a tendency to freeze up. If you keep it in the door it has a tendency to be affected by the door being opened and closed several times a days, so you don't really get a perfect temp.

I usually recommend to keep it toward the frond of the shelf, preferably on the top shelf. But I believe when you use the lower shelves you should probably keep it toward the middle of the shelf.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.

As you know I have been doing the liquid form of sinemet @ 5 and @ 7.  I have been taking 8 tbsp @ both times. I started out with 7 tbsp and had to increase it.

So in order to make my mixture my doctor told me to grind up 13 IR sinemet, and 2 Vit C in to 1 cup of water.  It sounds like a lot of medicine but it works.

Before i started to drink the liquid I never had this time of day under control. I was off all the time.  When I started this regime I was taking 1 rytary and 3 IR sinemet @ 5 and 2 @ 7. This still didnt control my symptoms 

  my question is that if there was a time that I couldnt make the liquid lets say I fell and had to go to the hospital  would I take 13 pills.

I actually did fall and had to go to urgent care but I had made the mixture earlier in the day so there wasnt an issue i just threw it in my purse

Noah,

The liquid sinemet is good for 24 hours after it is made as long as it is kept cold. If you have to go to the ER. which I have had to do a couple of times, I always grab my sinemet tablets and bring them along. First, I really don't know how long I am going to be there, and secondly, with a medication like that and the condition of PD, ER's are very understanding that you know how to take your medication and I know they will fully understand. I know they did with me.

Good luck, I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
