Taking one in the morning along with two risperidal and one in the evening with two risperidal ## If you want to get off of these medications in the safest manner, I would first recommend that you seek more personalized advice from your doctor who knows your medical history and other factors that should be taken into consideration before tapering.

whats shelf life of carbi levodopa 25 100

what is the shelf like of carbi/levodopa 25/100 arlene ## Hello, Arlene! How are you? If they are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, tablets expire one year from the date they were dispensed to you, because they are then exposed to the elements that cause degradation. If they are in the originally factory sealed bottle, they are usually good for at least 3 years, from the date of sealing. This medication is most commonly used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, hypotension and vivid dreams. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi , now that Synaptic Forte is no longer available. Is there a replacement that is as good as Synaptic. Thanks
