Does anyone else have major problems with dairy or meat in their diet effecting the effectiveness of Levadopa uptake. If I have any dairy products, levodopa does not work for a couple of days and it is similar with meat. Vegetable protein also has an effect, but not as dramatic. Obviously, I cannot completely remove protein from my diet, but I have not been able to find details of such a severe reaction. I also have central pain and meat and dairy seem to make that worse as well. It might be that they are also blocking the uptake of Gabapentin, that I take for the pain.
At least when my levodopa is not working, I get some relief from Dyskinesia and dystonia, but walking is a challenge!
