I found more specific information that it is used for the treatment of Parkinson-like symptoms. In non-scientific terms, that would be
shakiness, stiffness, and difficulty moving.

Myrna,
I don't know if those are some of the symptoms of Restless leg syndrome, but I hope this bit of information is helpful.

My Mom has been on Carb/levo tab 25-100 for the last two years. She was put on it when we told the Doctor at her routine checkup that her hand would occasionally have a tremor, no other symptoms and she basically felt good with little memory loss at age 80. He immediately said she probably had Parkinson's and started her on Carb/levo. She started being confused and having some memory loss. Since one of the main side effects of this medicine is confusion, I'm wondering if she might be better off to come off the medicine and see if this medicine is the difference! She has had two CT-scans and there has been no change there in the last 2 years! I'm not even sure she has Parkinson's and we can certainly live with a little hand tremor occasionally! I would rather my Mom be on less medicine and start feeling like herself again. She absolutely hates taking medicines! It was suggested that we put her on Namenda-10mg, last year and the whole time (9 mos.) she was on it she felt terrible, so we asked the Doctor if we could take her off. He said yes and that in fact there were no proven facts that it would even help improve her memory! She did start feeling better, but still gets very confused and repetitive. If she is taken off the medicine, is she taken off gradually? She takes it at 8am, 1pm & 6pm. Thank you for your time.

I've been taking carb/levo-25-100 for a month. For the last 3 weeks I have been waking at night from discomfort and a sense of pressure under my right side ribs. Is this something related to the medicine?

my mother is having the a same problem. I asked the neurologist about this and they wanted to increase her dose to 4 times a day. I now have her in a hospital and I am taking her off of it. My grandmother had a tremor in her hand and was told Parkinson's and it wasn't it was Thyroid the whole time.

My husband has been using Carb/Levo 25-100 since his diagnosis 5 years ago. New Neurologist has put him on the ER Carb/Levo which is affecting him badly, confusion, extreme drowsiness and forgetting things. Also has put him on Azilect which seems to do nothing except be very expensive.
