Everything looks good as far as spacing and  timing of medications. I would really like to see only one form of carbidopa/levodopa used. I think that when you use different varieties you will probably run into issues of off times that will be more difficult to correct. Since the majority of the carbidopa/levodopa are derived from Sinemet, I would recommend using that form throughout your dosing.

Other than that, timing and spacing appear correct.

Are their any issues you are having?

Thank you, I hope this helps

Yes, it helps a loT!  It confirms what I’ve been feeling all a!long, - that I’m taking too many different meds. . Now where do I start . With the rytary?

I was so excited to hear from you that I didn’t finish my reply.  Two neurologists have told me thru suspect I have MSA, bit that diagnosis didn’t change the way I’m treated.  I am slow, on a walker, fatigue easily, difficulty chewing, swallowing and speaking and sleep issues, incontinent,  also lose my balance easily but i try to go someplace every day. I have 2 excellent caregivers during the week and am blessed with loving friends and family. I work with a trainer 3xs/week, speech therapist 1 or 2xs/week. I am nowhere ready to give up.

thank you thank you for your time and expertise-.

sincerely',

Diane

Diane,

I would stick with the Sinemet. Easier to dose and change between fast acting and long acting.

More predictable results and not as sensitive as Rytary.

Anything else, let me know.
