Brief Answer: Sinemet + Symmetrel Detailed Answer: Hi, thank you for posting. Morbus Parkinson is a degenerative brain disease(central nervous system). This disease causes reducing of dopamine(brain neurotransmitter), that is followed by hand shaking, mood, cognition, and behavior problems. This disease is treated with: - Sinemet (Carbidopa + Levodopa 25 /250 mg) 1/2 pill four times a day (1/2 - 1/2 - 1/2 - 1/2), every 6 hours. The dosage is increased gradually. - Symmetrel (Amantadine) 100mg 1 pill twice a day. *Sinemet and Symmetrel are used together. You should contact a neurologist. Dr. Behar.
