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!
