Variable, but: In my experience, the maximum Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) dosing is the 25/250 tab four times daily, and if this seems to wear off, one can add Comtan (entacapone). Problem with going too high with L-DOPA is incidence of dyskinesias. ...Read more

What is the maximum anafranil (clomipramine) dosage for OCD resistant patients?

What is the maximum anafranil (clomipramine) dosage for OCD resistant patients?

250mg/day: Maximum recommended daily dose is 250mg, but some psychiatrist may push a bit further. If at 250mg/day and symptoms not controlled, pushing higher dose is not likely to benefit. Adding other medication, change of meds, or combining with cognitive/behavioral therapy probably is a better way to go then pushing too much of one drug--just my humble opinion. Consult your doc. Best of luck to you. ...Read more

What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

No official rec but: CoQ10 naturally occurs in every cell of our bodies so it's not considered an essential nutrient & there is no officially recommended dose. However, I advise a healthy person take 50 mg/day of the Ubiquinol form (which is better absorbed) as a preventive anti-aging agent. Those suffering from illnesses like heart disease & diabetes may benefit from 200-300 mg/day. See http://tinyurl.com/ocwb3vg ...Read more

Is it safe to take clonazepam for sleep with sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) for Parkinsons patient? Are there any drug interactions?

Probably safe...: ...but not especially the best choice! Although medications in that class (benzodiazepines) allay anxiety and can relax muscle spasm, they also interfere with normal sleep architecture and increase the risk of falling. I would certainly advise that you discuss this with your neurologist or a psychiatrist trained in sleep disorders or with additional training in geropsychiatry. ...Read more

Is prescribing Klonopin and Remeron (mirtazapine) appropriate for dementia patient?

Possibly fine: Remeron, (mirtazapine) aka generic mirtazepine, is often used for depression, anxiety, and to increase the appetite. It seems to be well tolerated in elderly people with dementia. It causes sedation, so its taken at nite. Klonopin aka generic clonazepam. This is used for anxiety, panic attacks,and restless leg syndrome. It is long acting, causes sedation and can worsen balance, so I'd suggest caution with it. ...Read more
