  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for balance problems)
  • Side effects
    Moderate
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Advice & Tips: Prescribed Carbidopa/Levadopa CR to spread absorption over more time. This reduced the dyskinesia and later I was able to tolerate 50-200 mgm, 1/2 tab., 5 times daily. Walking and balance have improved on this regimen. It is hard to keep up with this schedule but it helps me.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: jerky movements
