i have had PD for about 16 years. I have never been on Sinemet, except for a couple weeks. I am now on 100 mg of Mirapex 3X A DAY AND AMANTADINE 100mg. 3 X a day.
I would like to try taking Mucuna capsules. I have one bottle of Mucuna distributed by Himalaya from India. The label says...organic velvet bean seed -100 mg and 15% LDOPA...15 mg. and 500 mg organic velvet bean powder. The other bottle I have is called Mucuna Pruriens distributed by Swanson in the USA. Its' label says...Mucuna Puriena Seed Extract 350 mg. I also have a prescription for CARBIDOPA-LEVODOPA 25-100. I got this because I've read you need to take this with Mucuna to cross into the brain.
I don't know which one or how much to take or if I need the CARBDOPA-.EVOQOPA. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
