i would speak to his pd nurse ,it seems a bit of a mix & match drugs but im not a gp .maybe its a bit of trail & error with the meds at a early stage .i would phone his nurse to make appt & go with him so they can explain to you & also you can have a word to ! best of luck,that half a sinemet is it a slow release,as normal half a sinemet is 62.5mg
