What is Sinemet Used for?


Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) is a combined prescription medicine used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease or Parkinson-like symptoms such as shakiness, stiffness, difficulty moving and poor muscle control. The active ingredients in Sinemet are Carbidopa and Levodopa. Sinemet belongs to the group of medicine called Decarboxylase inhibitors (antiparkinson agents). Levodopa changes into dopamine in the brain, helping to control movement. Carbidopa prevents the breakdown of levodopa in the bloodstream so more levodopa can enter the brain. Carbidopa can also reduce levodopa's side effects, such as nausea and vomiting.
