Antibiotics and Sinemet

My husband has recently had a urine infection and was prescribed an antibiotic called Nitrofurantoin After taking the first four tablets of 100mg, the next morning he couldn’t even move off the bed and could hardly speak. We had to have a GP visit and she then changed the antibiotic. Has anyone experienced this with antibiotics knocking out the affect of Sinemet. It was very frightening.

Hi @Tony43,

Sorry to see that you haven’t received a response from the community as yet. It’s good that you’ve already consulted with your husbands GP, however, you may also find it useful to speak to one of nurses via our helpline for more information and support on this. Please give us a call on 0808 800 0303 Monday-Friday: 9am-6pm, Saturday: 10am-2pm or email us at [email protected].
