Uses
Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) is indicated for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and DRD (dopamine-responsive dystonia). The brain converts levodopa (one of the ingredients in this medicine) into dopamine, which acts as a replacement for the low dopamine levels which are often present in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Dopamine is considered to be important in helping to control bodily movement, and increasing the amount of it in the brain helps to reduce or control stiffness, shaking and movement difficulties. Carbidopa helps to lessen the occurrence of vomiting and nausea, which is a common side effect of levodopa. It can also make it easier for the prescribing doctor to adjust the dosage, so as to achieve optimum results.

Dosage and Administration
Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) tablets each contain 250mg of levodopa, whereas the carbidopa content is 25mg. Patients who are already undergoing treatment with levodopa must cease taking it at least 12 hours before commencing treatment with this combination drug. If the patient has been taking a dosage of levodopa in excess of 1500mg per day, there is a possibility that the doctor will instruct them to take one tablet 3 to 4 times per day. Further adjustments, such as for maintenance therapy, will be made by the doctor based on the patient's response to therapy, and close monitoring of the patient will be required.

Treatment of Parkinson's disease with Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) might result in side effects, such as:

  • Insomnia
