Sinemet dosage

I've been taking sinemet for almost a year now and have increased my dosage to 25/250 four times daily. Is this typical or low or high? Juat wondering a sit seems to wear off often before it's time for the next one.

Re: Sinemet dosage

More medicine is not the answer. With PD less medicine is really more.
Please read "Once Upon A Pill" It is free on the internet. Just google it
in. More medicine causes more uncontrolled movements that eventually
become irreversible. I wish someone had showed me this info. 5 years ago.
Good luck.

Re: Sinemet dosage

Check with your Neurologist about using smaller doses given more often. The goal is to use the minimum you need to control your symptoms...read my previous posts regarding this. That said..everybody is different. Try consulting a top neurologist for a 2nd opinion..
