Stalevo


#1

I have recently started taking Stalevo 100 x 25x 200.
Stalevo seems to take a long time for me to feel good in the morning?
What other medications do Stalevo users take to accelerate the down period to feeling normal?
As soon as I have reached “normal” the Stalevo works perfectly for me for the rest of the day?
It’s getting from waking up non medicated to taking my Stalevo and getting medicated enough to function that is my problem?

My husband takes two Madopar ( Co beneldopa) dispersible tablets first thing before trying to get up, , which gets him going, and he then starts on the Stalevo. Does seem to help.
Regards, Pippa

Hi Tony
Went on stalevo about 4 months ago switched from sinemet, lot of problems at first, just now beginning to feel I’m getting there, felt really off in mornings especially when getting up still think it need another slight adjustment doctor is ringing me on Thursday increased my tablet strength about 4 weeks ago to see if i improved better, and yes my mobility has ,tho still have my moments, stalevo 4 times a day 150mg ,also patch every morning neurpro 8mg , and slow release sinemet one at night, ,i find timing is crucial, find if i take my first tablet 20 mins before i get up ,i have a hot water and a black coffee and do my leg exercises before i attempt to get up is so much better, then space my tabs around 4 hours apart ,seems to be working good at min good luck Laney :slight_smile:
