    Sinemet side effects

    Thank you, Mark. However, based on your earlier input, Sinemet’s dose is individualised. Would you consider 800 mg per day a high dose ? Regards Divi
  3. Dear Mark, Are: 1. Black tarry stools 2. Dark yellow urine 3. Twitching of eyes Common side effects of sinemet? Thanks and regards Divi

    Dear Dr Comes what is the exact difference between extended release and controlled release?

    Sinemet

    Many thanks , Dr Comes for guiding me. Yes, I’m keeping a journal but timings aren’t matching Everyday As depending on my schedule, it keeps on changing. On a hectic day, I might need more than on a weekend.
  7. Dear Dr Comes, When is it better to take cr 50/200 vis-a-vis 25/100. I feel that 25/100 acts faster even if I take it a little after meal but cr requires totally empty stomach n then also it works till max 6 and a half hours or so. Is it it's normal duration of action or it all depends on your body as each PD patient's different. As I have RLS, sometimes, I sleep after taking cr around 10 but then it wears off by 3 am. Thanks.

    Also, shall I wait till the symptoms begin or take sinemet when I first feel the restlessness? Thank you.

    Sinemet

    Many thanks, Dr Comes. I'm 35 and currently 12 weeks pregnant and on sinemet easily going to 700 mg every day with one 50/200 cr in the morning and another at night to manage RLS n the rest of the day managing with two or three 25/100. My doc says take as much as necessary to manage the day, I feel the off period are terrible and I'm working full time. I was on pramipexole before pregnancy. Any pearls of wisdom would be great. Thanks!
  10. Hi All, What would you consider a high dose of sinemet? I understand that 800 mg is the considered max by FDA but each PD patient's different and some may require more and some less. I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant and on sinemet easily going to 700 mg every day with one 50/200 cr in the morning and another at night n the rest of the day managing with two or three 25/100.
