Encapatone do they help

Hi only been on these for 3 weeks take them with my sinemet I can’t see any difference.my partner said he can.the severe cramping in left foot is my biggest concern.it used to happen 30 mins before next dose of sinemet now it’s 1hr or more.thats why I was started on encapatone to make sinemet last longer so I shouldn’t get them but I do .on time is no different.any other people have this problem.also I enjoy a glass of wine but had stopped.does anyone know if you can drink on these meds?
