For Parkinson’s Disease “Since cutting my dosage of mirapexin which was causing me to sleep excessively and using sinemet I feel a lot better.I had also gained 12kilos while taking mirapexin which seemed to give me a sugar craving.I am not up to the full dose of sinemet yet but I am optimistic that I will lose the weight I have gained.Motor skills that I was told should return haven’t as yet.Paul, 57, Sports Teacher.Brighton England”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “I’ve been taking 50mg of Sinemet for RLS every night, just before bed. While it reduces RLS, my wife still says I twitch. Side effects: cold feet, I have to wear socks at night and even during normal activities around the house. Lately, I’ve noticed forgetfulness, a listed side effect. Am thinking about switching medications. However, all RLS meds seem to have the same side effects. I may go to Gabapentin Enacarbil, or Horizant.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “I am going on my 5th pregnancy with boy number 5. Around 9 weeks my legs were flopping around like a half-dead fish out of water that is what my legs looked like about every 30-40 seconds all day and night unless I was walking constantly. I begged my doctor to give me something, anything. She refused. I tried every natural remedy I could think of. She finally gave me sinomet at 25/100 mg dose half a pill and it worked wonders but I noticed after a few weeks of taking it wore off faster and then my legs became worse so my doctor has to keep increasing my dosage. I am 30 weeks now and at 2 pills a day. I take in half and quarter increments throughout the day to avoid the onset of the RLS. if taken properly it works great.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “At first I thought Sinemet was the greatest thing ever. I took it for two years and began to suffer all sorts of odd side effects which I didn’t at first associate with the drug. But the worst was one that nearly killed me. I didn’t even realize it was happening at first because I was having brief periods of blackout. I’d be walking and suddenly feel as though the earth had shifted under my feet. It finally happened while I was driving. I snapped out of it, fortunately without hitting anyone or anything, but didn’t know where I was. I stopped taking it and all the symptoms I’d experienced disappeared.”
