Mon, Mar 9 11:22pm · Rytary Dose? I take 3 pills 4 times daily. 48.75-195 mg , in Parkinson's Disease

Have you asked for a higher Mg formula for Rytary as you are on the lowest? Weight lost might not be due to Rytary. What does the Neurologist think?

Blood pressure hasn't been a problem. After seeing the Doctor he has me increasing my dosage by one more capsule every 8 hours. I will do it over a 3 week period. I started on Thanksgiving taking 4 at bedtime, then one week later 4 at 6:00am when I get up and this Thursday I will take 4 at 2:00 pm. So far so good and I can feel more energy during the day and no side effects.

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.

Yes we did switch to Rytary about 30 days ago and so far it has worked well. 3 capsules are taken at 6:00am, 2:00 pm and 10:00pm for a total of 9. The on time has been increased and we have seen fewer side effects. It is expensive but so far the results are worth it.

Thanks for your input. I am presently taking Sinemet CR (Carb/Levo ER Tab 50/200 so I don't know if that is the same as Stalevo. It is suppose to be long lasting but I didn't get the benefit so I have increased my dose of Carb/Levo 25/100 for the immediate impact I need. My Movement Disorder Neurologist believes I can get same if not better benefits from the Rytary and not have to take a dose so often. It is the expense I am wondering about so I need to work with my Rx Part D source to see what they will charge.

My doctor is suggesting I switch from a combination of Sinemet 25/100 and 50/200 to Rytary 36.25 mg-145 mg oral capsule,extended release. I would take 3 cap(s) 3 times a day. He feels my on time will increase. Is anyone taking Rytary? It is very expensive and not covered in my Rx Formulary at this time. If you are taking has it been an improvement? I have Parkinson for almost 7 years.

To start my day at 6 am, I take Carb/Levo 25/100 (1/2 Tab) and Carb/Levo ER 50/200 (1 Tab). Then 1 hour later I take 1 tab of Memantine HCL and 1 Rivastigmine Tartrate Caps to address my mild cognitive dementia. For some reason I have a difficult time swallowing the Memantine. It sticks to my tongue and taking with apple sauce or ice cream doesn't help as I swallow everything but the pill. It is so frustrating. Do you know if I can crush the Memantine and then put in apple sauce? Once all my pills have been taken, I begin to awake and function pretty good for about 4 hours.
