Simultaneous use of carbidopa and benserazide levodopas

Recommended Posts

Dear Doctor,


Due to lack and shortage of some drugs in my State in Brazil , I have been prescribed to take doses of levodopa +carbidopa and levodopa+benserazide (Sinemet and Madopar) , in the same day and sometimes togheter at same time if extended levodopa+benserazide is the indicated.


Do you see any harm, or problem, with this procedure ??


Yours Very Truly,

Joao Paulo

This is not common, however I will post for you for others to comment. As long as doses and intervals are adjusted to control your symptoms I would think it would be ok.
