I know you can get dry mouth, increased sweating etc., which may cause dehydration and it may become painful or difficult to urinate and yes you may get urinary tract infections. Are these the symptoms you have?

If it is then please see your doctor.

These are the known side effects of Sinemet:

Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Sinemet:
