My mother had taken sinemet for about 6 years, but her doctor had recently changed it for Rytary because sinemet was not helping her anymore. Since she is taking Rytary 36.25 mg/145 mg 4 times a day, she had felt better except for the dyskinesia she had for the past month. However, she started feeling muscle weakness 4 days ago. It looks like she is starting to have dystonia in her left hip and leg. Im not pretty sure if she has that but she shows symptoms of such. She starts to have that symptom after the third dose of Rytary like after 2:30pm. I dont know if she has that because of the med side effects or she is having that because its part of the disease progression. Im honestly concerned about it. Can anyone tell me if dystonia or muscle weakness is one of the Rytary's side effect or is it simply part of her condition? The weird thing is that her dykenisia had decreased which is good for her, but at the same time her walk is kinda clumsy and she feels weakness in her left leg which is not good. That's why I think she might have dystonia..

Hello, Rossy29! How are you?

Yes, those can be side effects of this mediation, as listed by the FDA. She may also experience nausea, dizziness, anxiety, somnolence and memory impairment.

Is there anything else I can help with?
