Hi there. My Father has just been diagnosef at 69 with Parkinsons and has been given Sinemet Plus 125mg tablets. Now he has been told that he has to take (bare with me here lol) half a tablet once a day then half twice a day then half 3 times a day and then basically the same with whole tablets till he is on 4 whole tablets a day. What I’m confused about is that apparently the doctor never told him when to take the different doses.
We had planned to do it at 7AM. Then 7AM and 7PM. Then 7AM, 1PM and 7PM. And then finally 7AM, 11AM, 3PM AND 7PM. But we are unsure if changing from 1PM to two doses when he needs to at 11AM and 3PM will cause issues. It is very confusing having to keep regular timings while also adding the amount of halves and wholes he has to take.
Anyone had the same issues or any tips?
Thank you and sorry for the awful layout of my question lol
