I take 2  Carb/Levo 25-100 MG pills 3 times a day. I would have no energy or be able to move if I didn’t take this medication.  It works the best when I take 1/2 pill every hour when I’m at work or in public setting. The reason i do this is because theres side affects when taking this medication . The side affects are involuntary movements called Dyskinesia.

For me Dyskinesia is the most embarrassing part of Parkinson’s . People look at you strange. I’ve been trying to try new medication that might help with the unwanted dyskinesia. My neurologist asked me me to try a new extended release Carbo / Levo pill called Rytary. It works ok but it takes a while for the medication to work. For some reason it doesn’t seem to last long either.
