I tend to use drugs.com as a basis for my information on pd drugs but Im sure there are others just as good if not better.
I find drugs.com a good site to use but it is a u.s.a site and some drugs are not approved by the FDA.
It does have an easy to use interactions checker and also drug manufacturer leaflets and advice for the patient and professional.
I would suggest that any information that comes from this thread you use for discussion with your medical team ie neuro, pd nurse, gp etc. It is not the intention to replace existing professional advice rather to reiterate what the manufacturer states on their info leaflets and raise any concerns we may have.
The drug names are the UK versions
So here goes.
LEVODOPA BASED DRUGS
Sinemet: also known as Sinemet Plus, Sinemet CR and Half Sinemet and available in a range of doses
Manufacturer Merck, Sharp and Dohme (any other manufacturer is a generic brand)
Active ingredients: Levodopa/carbadopa
You may wish to discuss the following with your medical care provider:
Sinemet should be given in a low initial dose and slowly increased until the patient fells the benefit of the drug.
Prescribed a generic version instead of original.
Before I go further I await comments
