  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 25 mg-100 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was placed on this medicine to confirm my diagnosis of PD. I felt immediate results. However, the meds had to be taken at exactly the moment it was due. If I was just a bit late, I could tell the symptoms come back. It would be several hours before I returned to my former self.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: I do take Motilium 20 minutes prior to taking the Carbilev 25/250. I works well and I have not been nauseous at all as was the case in December when I took only the Carbilev 25/100. Side effects were very bad. Now I feel wonderful - tremors totally under control.
Side effects: Heart palpitations, Nausea, Dizziness, Dizziness

Dec 27, 2009 (Started Dec 03, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): None
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Advice & Tips: Because of the severe side-effects (nausea, palpitations, dizziness) and the fact that the tremors stayed the same I weaned myself and decided to research all the natural possibilities.
Side effects: Heart palpitations, Nausea, Dizziness, Dizziness

Dec 22, 2009 (Started Dec 03, 2009)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): None
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1.5 other Daily
Advice & Tips: Was taken off Requip XL (edema and sleeping problems). The first week taking Carbilev was terrible, half 3 x pd 25/100. I really felt so blah! Nauseous, heart racing, teary etc. Then I decided to not give up, but go on: 1, and half 2 x. After another week I realised that although there were no side-effects, there was also no difference in the tremors. That was when I decided to go off Carbilev. My neurologist is away on holiday, and I'm trying this by myself. My hubby and kids feel I'm doing the right thing - sure they hope that this will indicate that PD was wrongly diagnosed (of course so do I). But what next - do I share with her (Dr), do I wait and see whether I progress or retrogress. Muscles slightly stiff, right hand and leg tremor not worse and they listen when I "speak" to them.
Side effects: Heart palpitations, Nausea, Dizziness, Dizziness
