carbidopa-levo

My husband has been on carbidopa-levo for almost a year--for his shaking-- and there is no improvement as yet. What else can he do and what is the side effects of this drug??

Dear Sandy70,

Has your husband discussed any medicines such as Comtan 200 with his Dr.? This increases the effectiveness of the Ca/Levo. Be advised, it is expensive!
