Parkinson: Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) is what our neurologists use. Consult your pcp for other options.

There are other medications for Parkinson disease such as Mirapex, Mirapex ER, Requip, Requip XL, Neupro, Azilect, Duopa, Rytary and Amantadine. Also one should consult with a Neurologist perferably one with a fellowship in movement disorders rather than a Primary Care Physician.
