What is Sinemet CR Used for?

Sinemet CR (Carbidopa/Levodopa) is a combined prescription medicine used to treat symptoms of Parkinson disease or Parkinson-like disorders such as stiffness or tremors. The active ingredients in Sinemet CR are Carbidopa and Levodopa. Sinemet CR belongs to a class of drugs called Decarboxylase Inhibitors (Antiparkinson Agents). Sinemet CR works by causing the slow release of levodopa and carbidopa. Levodopa is a chemical closely related to dopamine, allowing the body to dopamine. Carbidopa makes sure that enough levodopa gets to the brain where it is needed. This keeps the amount of levodopa in your brain and improves your symptoms.

Are there any Precautions and Drug Interactions for Sinemet CR?

Before taking this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to carbidopa or levodopa; or any other allergies. Although rare, you may feel light-headed or dizzy while taking Sinemet CR. This is because your blood pressure is falling suddenly. Standing up slowly, especially when you get up from bed or chairs, will help your body get used to the change in position and blood pressure. If this problem continues or gets worse, tell your doctor. It may take up to several weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve. Tell your doctor if the effects of this medicine wear off quickly between doses. It is advisable not to stop using Sinemet CR suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to stop using this medicine safely.

You should not take Sinemet CR and inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have or have had:
• An endocrine (hormonal) disorder;
• Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other breathing disorder;
• A stomach or intestinal ulcer;
• Heart disease, high blood pressure or heart attack;
• Kidney disease;
• Liver disease;
• Mental illness, depression or psychosis;
• Open-angle glaucoma;
• Seizure disorder;
• Skin cancer or melanoma;

You should tell your doctor if you become pregnant or plan to become pregnant while taking Sinemet CR (Carbidopa/Levodopa) capsule. Your doctor will discuss the risk of taking this medication while pregnant. It would be best if you inform your doctor before breastfeeding your child. It has been shown that one of the active ingredients of Sinemet CR passes into breast milk. Therefore, because of the potential harm to the baby, Sinemet CR should not be used during breastfeeding.

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements to prevent drug interactions, which might be fatal to your health.

• Guanfacine;
• Iron salts (e.g., ferrous sulfate);
