Madopar or Co-Beneldopa speedy advice needed.
Last week my local surgery/pharmacy changed my 62.5 mg Madopar to 62.5 mg Co-Beneldopa, the generic name. Technically they should be the same - 50 mg levodopa/12.5 mg benzeradide.
But something fairly dramatic has happened. My akynesia has worsened considerably, my walking has got very dodgy and I feel very zombie like (no disrespect to zombies). Also my inner tremor, not visible, which had all but gone away is back and quite bad.
Could this be the change in tablet regime or is it merely coincidence? I'm still on the 125 mg Madopar but will they change that?
Advice please. Will call my pharmacy tomorrow.
