Hi Simon 2003
Why are you takeing sinemet if you don’t no why. On if thay are controling your condition or better still why did you in the first place I have been on the sinmet for a few years now and iwould no if I missed them but no idea if I was not on them wot would happen but ido no that l. no when and wot happens when I take them and it takes20 mins at most to stop shake you never said how long you have in the parky club for my self it been 2010 have a good Easter and don’t let mr parky win. On wot ever you do

I take 8 25/100 a day but I have problems with them when I have food. They normally take 30 mins to kick in but after food they can take a couple of hours. Does anyone else have this problem?

sorry long time ago ,started taking on advice of my consultant ,i take 4 now as had morning anxiety issues so have one when i wake and im OK when im getting up ,i still dont really feel them taking effect or making my tremor any better or worse ,i did ask why am i being prescribed as tremors were milder when i was diagnosed in 2017/18 ,she said so you have a base level and a bit of a headstart if required as im getting older?

Im still here…not doing too well.
I’m told that I have parkinsons plus. That’s five years àfter my diagnosis. Things are moving too quickly. I am 61 and I feel much older. My legs hardly work and I sit in a chair for most of the day .I have no energy or enthusiasm for anything .I don’t live i exist . Its getting to me after six years

You can take as many as you want as long as there working and your not getting bad side effects dyskinesa i know i say this but when you need more consult with your parkinsons disease movement nurse your gp will tell there’s a limit but your pd nurse and neurologist will sort a plan out.
