  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Over the past 2 years have developed anxiety and other symptoms similar to hypoglycemia one and a half hours after taking half a Sinemet 100/25. I live a roller coaster life trying to balance some relief from my Parkinsonism (mainly right sided weakness)with the negative side effects of the med.Any suggestions? The doctors do not seem to be able to address this issue -- or know much about it.
