Is anyone using Rytary

Yes I am still taking Rytary and it has really helped my off time. I will see my Neurologist on Wednesday for my every 4 month check in. My question to him will be: Why do I have such a good "on time" after taking my morning dosage but my afternoon dosage which is the same doesn't give me the same energy lift? I take 3 capsules 8 hours apart beginning at 6:00 am, then 2:00 pm and then at bedtime 9:30 pm.

That is an interesting question for your doctor, @tllaes. I would be interested in the answer as well. I'm not a medical professional but just wondering if Rytary lowers blood pressure as other PD medicines do. If that it the case, then the lower energy might be from the lowered BP after the second dose? It might be worth asking about.

I'm wondering if @dianalee has an opinion about that?

If you are comfortable doing so, @tllaes, I would like to hear what your doctor has to say about the lowered energy.
