  1. Waruna01, Thank for this information, it is greatly appreciated.
  2. Mykelde, It is true, iron does interact with Sinemet which results in decreased absorption of Sinemet in the stomach. I recommend taking any vitamins, herbs, and minerals at least one hour before or two hours after any prescription medication. This is the best way to avoid these interactions. I hope this helps and please keep me posted
  3. Super, Thank you. The surgery went well and as planned. I'm on the road to recovery.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm sorry I have not been able to get to your posts in a timely manner but will do my best to catch up this week. I had back surgery Thursday and am still recovering. I appreciate your patience, Mark
  5. Edie, There is no documented interaction between Skullcap and Carbidopa/Levodopa, but since Skullcap is over-the-counter many of the interactions may not be recognized. Just to make sure there is no interaction I recommend that you take the Skullcap one hour before or one hour after prescription medication. Either way, one will be absorbed before the other gets into the system. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  6. Otolorin, That is up to the Doctor to decide. In my experience though, I have seen patients go back on the CR at a dose they were on prior to Rytary without having any dyskensia. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  7. Edie, The same goes for the Mucina Pruriens as far as how many studies have been done. There is more information about the Mucina than the Brahmi, it is still vague as to how much is needed which will be different from patient to patient. I did read an article a while back from a researcher who said that a person could not intake enough Mucina in order to replace a product like Sinemet or Rytary. I understand more than most about how we would try almost anything if there was a possibility that it might work. If you were to try it, start with the lowest dose just once daily, then increase if needed after a week or so. Also, make sure you take it about an hour before or an hour after taking your PD medications. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  8. Catherine, This indeed is Buspirone 30mg made by Heritage Pharmaceutical Company. It is peach in color and has the imprint of: HP 97 10 10 10 I don't believe he should have any problems at all. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  9. Esther, I have not seen enough solid research to say whether or not it could be helpful. I will tell you that your body will absorb and utilize all the B1, along with all B Vitamins, it needs and the rest will be eliminated through the urine. That is why you usually notice that the urine takes on a bright yellow color and may also have an odor. Before going beyond the recommended daily amount I would first suggest you speak with your Doctor about trying a higher dose. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  10. Edie, Brahmi has been shown to protect certain cells, but at this point it appears to work best on chemicals used for learning and memory. The ginkgo works in a very similar fashion. I don't see an issue with trying them, just make sure to take them at least an hour before or an hour after taking your Carbidopa/Levodopa. As far as the St. John's Wart is concerned, I have seen it cause some serious mental issues such as hallucinations, delusions, and loss of memory. I do agree with your Doctor to stay away from it. Make sure you let your Doctor know everything that you are taking. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  11. Michelle, I am currently taking the Sun brand of Carbidopa/Levodopa CR 50/200 and have had good success with it. I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
  12. Waywrd, I will work on it for you.
  13. Diana, Also, any and all information is confidential with them.
