carb levo er 50 200

My wife taking 1/2 tab of carbidopa levadopa 50/200 ER to assist w/sleep. She has just started medicating and doesn't want to overmedicate too soon. Does cutting the pill render it less effective? Are more tremors possible as a result? Thanks. ## Hello, Richard! How is you wife? She cannot cut these tablets, the ER designates them as being time released, so cutting or breaking them could actually cause her to ingest too much of the medication, at once. They need to be swallowed whole. Normal side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, hypotension and somnolence. Is there anything else I can help with?

how to take carb levo

Are there certain foods I should not take with carbo-levo? Should I take it with meals? ## From what I've read, the combination of Carbidopa + Levodopa can be administered with food to reduce the likelihood of nausea; however, it should be noted that using multivitamins or minerals together with levodopa may decrease the effects of your medication. Additionally, a high-protein diet may also reduce its absorption and overall efficacy. That said, it might be best to take this medication by itself or in between meals, to help avoid any chance of it not working as effectively as it should. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Carbidopa + Levodopa Details I hope this helps!

How To Take Carbolevo

Take Carbolevo with what products? ## Hi Alex, Based on my research, Carbidopa/Levodopa should be taken by mouth, usually 3 to 4 times a day or as directed by your doctor. If you have been taking Levodopa without any Carbidopa and are taking this combination for the first time, wait at least 12 hours after your last dose of Levodopa before taking the them together. Carbidopa/Levidopa can be taken with a light snack to help decrease nausea, however you should refrain from taking it with high-protein snacks because they may prevent absorption. If you take any supplements that contain iron, be sure to take them hours before/after your dose because Iron can reduce the amount of Carbidopa and Levodopa available to the body.
