new to Rytary vs caridopa-levadopa

I am new to Rytary and am having mixed results. Works sometimes other times not. The Doc wants me to go up to 3 - 23.75--95 4 times a day. I was taking 1 - 100/25 only 2 times a day for 12 years with minimal off time. I really didn't know what off time was until I just fell apart in the last month. I took 3 rytary when I woke up and that works but then the next dose I experimented with 1 rytary and 1 100/25 and it worked. No down time. Is it ok to mix the two and am I not getting far less dopa this way. I don't understand the doc's reasoning for 12 Rytary/day. Any thoughts?

  • I THINK THE CONVERSION TO RYTARY IS DIFFERENT. I READ SOMEWHERE THAT 1 25/100 = 1 91.5/625. I JUST WENT TO RYTARY TOO AND WENT FROM 1/2 25/100 + 1/2 CR 50/200 TO 1 91.5/625 4 X DAY AND I FEEL MUCH BETTER. JUST WORRIED ABOUT INSURACE. DOC GAVE ME FREE 1 BOTTLE OF 100.

  • yes it is very expensive - my bottle of 240 was $700 plus. we had to fight with insurance but for now they will cover it. my problem is it doesn't work for me most of the time

  • I find it a little unreliable. It has an off switch. It's called food.
