is sinemet safe?
HI everyone, my nuero says i have rls and perscribed sinemet gerneric name carb/levo. i read up on medicine and it is used for parkinsons disease,, im worrried about taking something for such a serious illness.. my doctor says rls will not turn into parkinsons disease,, but rls just responds to the same medicine.. Im not even 100% sure i have rls.. but these are the symptoms i described to the nuero... at nite i get leg cramps, not charley horses just achey cramping feeling,, and i just want to move them all over the place,, its such a wierd sensation, and it only occurs when layiing down or sitting for long periods of time. i saw that commercial for rls and i dont seem to have the symptoms they say on tv.. but doc says its not always what the tv shows... Does anyone take this medicine on a regular basis at nite?? So far ive taken 4 times and really dont think its working,, should the meds work right away or does it take time? does anyone have any info or advice about sinemet? thanks
