When I posted about 3 weeks ago I had been on 25/250 carbidopa/levodopa for 1 week and 25/100 for 1 month previous. I have now been on 25/250 (3x per day) for about 4 weeks and the difference this drug has made in my life is amazing. I have got my balance back 100%.

When I first started on the meds, I became very depressed and almost suicidal! I cried all the time. I kept calling the dr, they said it was not from the Sinament. After research for myself, they lied! I felt like I was going crazy. It lasted for a couple of weeks. It did get better. I have been on it for about 1 1/2 years now. Recently, it is not working as good.
