Newbie to the forum and needs advice on co-caryldopa


I’m new to the forum. I’m 69 and live with my dear husband and carer who is 76. In 2010 I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s which was well controlled with co-careldopa until I developed chronic fatigue syndrome in 2016. In 2017 I had a series of seizures after which my mobility was much reduced.

I have so many questions to ask, but the one on my mind at present concerns the slow release form of co-caryldopa. I can’t help thinking that this is more effective than the normal version at the same dose.

Has anyone else suspected this?
