Maximum dose of sinemet in pregnancy

Recommended Posts

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. 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!

I would suggest you ask Dr. Okun. We are no doctors and I personally would not recommend anything.  Only a doctor can give this type of information.  Good luck!
