I have just had a terrible weekend due to a hopelessly ill-informed non-specialist GP (substituting for the consultant neurologist at an outpatient appt) telling me to change my 3 hourly 125 madopar to 125 madopar CR (slow release) plus 62.5 capsule. Within 24 hours I had completely lost the plot. Couldn't stop crying and could hardly move or think . Have gone back to the previous regime today and beginning to feel less out of it.
I can see there's logic in trying to smooth out my savage off/ on swings by increasing background levels of l-dopa but the madopar CR seemed to have no effect at all. I've read our American friends' posts about Rytary and I'm wondering if it's the same sort of thing as madopar cr or whether it's a different type . And if so is it available in the UK?
I'm clutching at straws but as it's 5 years since I saw a neurologist (not for want of trying!) I have to do my own research.
