My mom has been taking sinemet (25/100) 4 times a day for 2 years. She also takes one pill of Azilect. She gets up early like 4:30 so her first sinemet dose is around 5 am. When we saw the doctor last Friday she told him how she fades in afternoon. He recommended switching to rytary. He told her to try 2 pills 3 times (95 dose) for two days then increase to 3 pills at a time then to 3 pills 4 times a day. It has been a rough week. Her anxiety became much worse and her confidence tanked which only made Parkinsons symptoms worse plus her legs were shaky and weak due to increased anxiety. So we made the call to go back to sinemet last night. We see doc tomorrow.
I wonder if adding a half a pill more of sinemet would have been better then switching drugs completely.
Anyone else experience something similar?
