TIREDNESS AFTER TAKEN SINEMET

Recommended Posts

Dear Doc Okun.

                            Here I am again seeking your advice.I recently increased my sinemet 25/100mg dose to 1/2 and a 1/4 tab ,four times daily at intervals of 3 1/2 hours.But after every dose I tend to feel tired,to the extent that people ask me on the phone if I feel sleepy from the way I sound.Please doctor what can I do to manage this problem,apart from taking a nap?

                            Thank you for your time sir.
