Hi all. Advise please!
S wants to cut down on his drugs! None of them do that much good and is taking a shed full a day. Causes so many rows, as he never takes them on time, although I have alarms going off all over the place. At the moment it is still one thing he CAN do for himself, so I make him!!!
We have read about the side effects and I know lots of you have stopped taking Sinemet, because of them. Until now, I thought he was getting benefit from them, but not so sure now.
How have you cut down? I know that he shouldn't just stop, he is taking two tablets three time a day, 25mg/100mg plus 1 tablet half Sinemet every night.
We have not got an appointment to see the consultant, so it's going to be at least three months before we see him, even if the appointment arrives in the post tomorrow! I know our GP will wimp out of making any decision himself.
S is all for just going it alone, but I would like hear your stories of coming off Sinemet, the good and bad please!!!
Lots of love
