Help, please. I take generic carbidopa/levodopa 25/100, 1.5 tablets every 2.5 hours. The manufacturer changes often, but the pharmacy tells me that the pills "should" all be the same. My doctor tells me the same thing. I live in the U.S. I started a new bottle 3 days ago from an unfamiliar manufacturer - Sun Pharma. Since I've started taking it, my stomach has been upset and I've felt jittery all over. I have never felt this when taking any of the other generic brands. Also, the other generic brands have all been round yellow pills. The Sun Pharma pill is an oval shape yellow pill. (I looked up the tablet imprint - 518 on one side and blank on the other. It is the correct type of medication.)
My questions are: have any of you taken the Sun Pharma carbidopa/levodopa generic pill and, if so, did you have any adverse reaction to it? Also, does anyone have an opinion as to the best carbidopa/levodopa generic brand available in the U.S.?
