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. Your doctor may lower the dosage of both medications or even suggest taking each pill in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pieces can be taken in place of the regular dose for a period of several weeks until the body is no longer dependent upon them.

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

Abdominal pain and very tender skin

My symptoms are like shingles, but with no rash. It's confined to my waist, breast and back. I have had 3 mri cat scans with no results. I was recently diagnosed with parkinsons, but not sure that is the problem. No drugs have any effect on my severe pain.


Used for Parkinson's Disease. ## Is this drug also indicated for insomnia related to alcohol abuse? ## Are you all asking about a compound called Tryptamine? This is not used in pharmaceutical drugs, but has been mentioned in various research papers from the NIH and others. It is also known for its psychoactive properties and illicit use. To the OP or anyone else: Can you double check and post the correct spelling of the drug you are asking about?


SINCE I STARTED TAKING CRBIDIO LEVO, I HAVE GRADUALLY NOTICED JAW TREMORS AND MY OPPOSITE HAND START ING THE SAME SHAKING AS MY RIGHT HAND DOES. IS THIS A SIDE EFFECTFROM THE MEDICATION? ## I have developed jaw tremors too. It is not constant though frequent. Most notable late in the day the tremor seems very undesirable. I'm ugly enough without the movement attracting attention to my face. ## Yes, it has been known to cause tremors as a side effect, according to FDA warnings, along with nausea, dizziness, Anxiety, insomnia, dry mouth, and hypotension. Sometimes they go away, once your body gets used to the medication, but sometimes you may need a dosage adjustment, or to try a different medications. Has anyone else experienced this issue?
