Rytary - blood pressure and energy changes

I've experienced a dramatic increase in blood pressure as well as intense sleepiness and muscle weakness within 2 days of switching to Rytary. ## It is more common for this medication to cause a drop in blood pressure, according to the FDA, but the other issues you've listed could be side effects of it.

My wife has had PD for 15 years, during which time she has taken nearly every medication available, usually with success at first but with too many side effects eventually to cause her to look for other solutions. The latest is Rytary, which her neurologist prescribed her 62.5/245mg 16 pills per day (4 pills four times).

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.

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 effe...

generic Rytary - carbidopa and levodopa

Is this medication available in a generic form yet, or can I only get my prescription filled with the brand name? ## There is a generic for Carbidopa/levodopa. Sinemet, the brand name has been out forever. Just call your pharmacy they would know for sure. :)
