Dosage: 3 x 25 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Since beginning Sinemet in 10-09 I can tell a great improvement. When I was only on Mirapex and Azilect, I have many PD symptoms that were not under control. The medicine would only work for about 3 months and then the symptoms yould return. Now that I am on Sinemet, it is like a day and night improvement. The sinemet has almost made the symptoms disappear; something that the Mirapex and Azilect did not do.

I am talking better, less mumbling, I am actually moving more quickly.
