For Parkinson's Disease "Didn't improve any symptoms. Side Effects: 1. It was messing up my stomach and starting to cause problems with my acid reflux 2. I had several episodes of feeling really anxious and my heart would race – on the verge of panic attack, maybe? 3. Very slight fear of the dark"

Stay hydrated... · Taken for less than 1 month · April 11, 2017

For Parkinson's Disease "I just started taking this drug about 3 weeks ago. The first week was a little rough and it leaves a funny taste in my mouth. However, now that I am getting used to it, I find it helpful. I can take less Carbidopa/Levodopa and has much smoother transition between end/begin of medication times. ONE THING I HAVE FOUND is the importance of staying hydrated. Dehydration is a side effect and it shows. If I don't watch it, I start feeling bad & symptoms flare up. After I drink a large glass of water, I start feeling better."

"Comtan worked well on my restless leg syndrome. I didn't have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, and I was able to sleep for seven hours straight. I never can do that with generic Sinemet because it wears off too soon. I wish I could get a prescription for it instead of just the samples given to me by a neurologist."

For Parkinson's Disease "I take Sinemet 25/100 4 x daily 1 1/2 tabs with 100 mg Comtan 4 x daily with my Sinemet and it seems to work well for lessening my "wear off" periods but it does cost a lot."
