I would like to try switching my mom over from her immediate release (IR) carbidopa levadopa (C/L) to controlled release (CR) C/L during the day. She already takes CR CL at night and I notice that it seems to work much smoother for her. She still needs one or two IR C/L throughout the night until she gets up in the morning. Currently her day time dose is one and a half IR C/L every two hours about. She gets pretty bad off times and pretty bad dyskinesia. I am wondering if CR C/L will make her day more consistent and smooth.
Any recommendations or suggestions on how to switch her over to CR?
