What is the maximum dosage per day for Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) tablets?

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.
