Hoping for some advice. Started on sinemet earlier last month and gradually increased from 1/4 tab ( 25/100) 3x day to now I'm at 2 tabs 3 x day. After initial bad effects from it I've generally settled down, feeling no effects from them in the day but can still can get light headed and nauseous if I haven't had much breakfast when I take the first set. Yesterday I forgot the lunch ones and maybe that had something to do with the fact that after I took the dinner ones I felt terrible with hot flushes, clammy and then eventually vomiting. Has that happened to anyone else when they forget a dose?
Since I have yet to see any positive results from the sinemet the Dr has advised me to add one more tab next week and break the doses into 4x/day, finally adding another one so I'm taking a total of 8/day to see if that helps with my bradykenesia. Must say I'm very hesitant to even take any this morning let alone shudder at the thought of taking them before eating as I'll have to do when I have them four times a day. :/
