As there are so many combinations of drugs and drugdoses you might find no-one takes exactly the same . After all everyone's Parkinsons is dfferent and we often react differently to the drugs.too.
I would try and keep the Sinemet dose low, following the rule "Go low, go slow, i.e.keep increases low and give it time to show what it can do Do not be too greedy,take just enough to get the desired effect. It might take a little longer to achieve, but be patient. You certainly learn to be patient with this disease!.Are you going from 0ne(?) Sinemet to 5 a day? at the same time ncreasing the patc Would it not be better to increase one drug at a time, not both.
