Applies to:carbidopa/levodopa and Seroquel (quetiapine)
QUEtiapine may reduce the effectiveness of levodopa. In addition, using these medications together may increase the risk and/or severity of side effects like drowsiness, low blood pressure, dizziness, and lightheadedness. These effects may occur with either medication alone and are most likely to be seen at the beginning of treatment, following a dose increase, or when treatment is restarted after an interruption. Let your doctor know if you develop these symptoms and they do not go away after a few days or they become troublesome. Avoid driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you, and use caution when getting up from a sitting or lying position. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
