Post Carbidopa-Levidopa 25/250
My husband's neurologist recently increased the dosage on his carbidopa-levidopa from 25/100 to 25/250. He takes this 4 times a day. This was done to improve some of his Parkinsonian symptoms. We phased it in over a months time. All went well for the first three weeks and he seemed to feel less tired. Now in week five he says he feels tired, lacking energy and "lousy" every morning. He can't get more specific than that. We do have an appointment with the neurologist next week but I wondered whether anyone has had experience with carbidopa at that dosage. I realize it could be the medication or could just be a progression in this difficult disease.

I had the same negative response to that drug, plus I had nausea, dry heaves, and uncontrolled yawning. The drug never helped my rigidity and my new neurologist told me that PD drugs do not help LBD symptoms. Just my experience.

Thanks, Donald. My husband has a neurologist's appointment Monday so we'll see what he has to say.
