Madopar Domperidone

I have had Parkinson’s 5 years msnsged with rotigotine patches, levodopa upset stomach badly
Specialist now wants me to try as above, slow release madopar, one esch evening. Any comments please, side effects, do they last many bdays?

Hi @Brenwes,

I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t had the best experience with levodopa and appreciate the scary prospect of trying different medication for your condition. I’m sure you’ll hear from the community soon; however, in the meantime, we have information on the benefits as well as the risks of taking Dopamine agonists on our website here -

I hope you find this information useful.

Best wishes,

Hi Brenwas

I felt extremely nauseous when put on Madopar so came off it only to have the consultant say ‘well,if we have to prescribe this for you again we will have to prescribe an anti-sickness drug for you to use before starting Madopar’. I’ve not gone back on it!
