Sinemet half life

Common Questions and Answers about Sinemet half life


2103810 tn?1333707978 I forgot how terrible the RLS and cold sweats were in opiate withdrawal...showers feel awesome. Extra awesome even. Food tastes like crap half of the time and better than ever the other half. Weird right? I feel very confused throughout the day, light headed, sneezing A LOT. But worst of all is the legs...the constant moving legs that won't let me sleep. When will this end!
Avatar f tn In 2001, following a sleep study, I was found to have restless leg syndrom and prescribed Sinemet for the symptoms. Over the years the symptoms increased, and I now have severe lower back and neck pain, joint pain (especially knees) and my RLS has become more pronounced. I now have the symptoms beginning much earlier in the day, so have had to increase the use of Sinemet.
Avatar m tn I hate to say this but I feel a long acting pain med may be a better option that Vicodin that has a short half life. The only other things pain management wise I can think of (dont know if you tried yet) are neurontin for nerve pain,,and sometimes the Parkinsons medications like sinemet can help with nerve issues too,,its an off label use of it. Opiates cause depression,,but from what I read a lot of your depression seems to stem from your legite pain issues.
Avatar m tn Have gained over 20 lbs in last three yrs now 195. Recently visited top neurologist in Vancouver via referral because Sinemet has no effect on me. He told me that I have a tremor intensive version and that it progresses slower and that tremor like mine is very difficult to control, unfortunately we ran out of time and he is 800 miles from here so won't be seeing him again and was not able to discuss pain.
Avatar n tn The reason Methadone takes much longer then other opioids to detox, is not only associated to the long half-life of the medication, but mostly due to the manner in which the body stores it. Methadone is stored in the body's tissues and fat cells, as such it takes longer for the body to rid itself of the toxin. It literally is like poison that infest everywhere in your organs and is considered the hardest opioid to get off of, especially CT.
Avatar n tn Medicines that are more likely to cause constipation are ones that slow the intestines, such as sinemet, tigan, lasix, and morphine.
544292 tn?1268886268 I have such respect for anyone who has come off Tramadol and .... I don't know ... maintained a life? Mud mud mud everywhere. Walking thru mud. I just took vitamins and a big cup of Lecithin granules which are supposed to decrease anxiety. I feel frightened and alone. These are DRUG THOUGHTS. But they get scary. It's like randomly losing your mind, and then suddenly; "POP" you are back to "normal.
Avatar m tn K is trying me on a med that is used for Parkinson's - dreadful side effects - and I only took a half pill. Can barely stay upright for more than a few minutes. Thanks so much for your support.
Avatar n tn // Also, I plan on getting some Sinemet. Mirapex is also another medicine for RLS (I have only heard of this, so this may not be as helpful as Sinemet).

Avatar n tn I think it is because he truly loves my and wants to live a long and healthy life together without pills. I did this search to find a tramadol addiction website because I haven’t told you the icing on the cake yet. Friday night I cooked dinner, had the house spotless, had his favorite candles everywhere and was trying to set the mood for a very peaceful evening at home.
