In brief: Dosages

Dosages are adjusted for the specific needs of each patient - there is no standard dose for any specific time period.
Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) comes in carbadopa-levodopa doses of 10-100, 25-250, and 25-100. These can be combined and given at various times throughout the day to best relieve the symptoms of parkinson's disease. If you are not sure of your dose or the dose of someone you are caring for, you need to call the doctor that prescribed the medication to clarify. Good luck!
