Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: levodopa and Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)
Ask your doctor before using levodopa together with pyridoxine. Pyridoxine may decrease the effects of levodopa resulting in less levodopa available for your body to use. You should be advised against taking pyridoxine-containing vitamin supplements. If your doctor prescribes these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment to safely use both medications. 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.
Drug and food interactions
Applies to: levodopa
Alcohol can increase the nervous system side effects of levodopa such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with levodopa. You may experience reduced effectiveness of levodopa in the presence of foods or enteral (tube) feedings with a high protein content. This may make the symptoms of Parkinson's disease worse. Talk with your doctor or nutrition counselor about the best foods to eat while you are taking this medication. Contact your doctor if your condition changes.
