Lodosyn is a medication that is used in combination with levodopa to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease or Parkinson-like symptoms.

Lodosyn contains the active ingredient carbidopa, which works by inhibiting the peripheral metabolism of levodopa. By doing so, it increases the amount of levodopa that reaches the brain, where it is converted into dopamine.

Lodosyn helps to enhance the effectiveness of levodopa.

Use and Dosage

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor. You may be directed to take this medication with one, some, or all of your levodopa/carbidopa doses. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Since this medication is always taken with a levodopa-containing product, it is best to avoid a high-protein diet (it decreases the amount of levodopa that your body takes in) during treatment, unless directed otherwise by your doctor. Separate your dose of this medication by as many hours as possible from any iron supplements or products containing iron (such as multivitamins with minerals) you may take. Iron can reduce the amount of levodopa absorbed by the body. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day.

Some patients may experience a “wearing-off” (worsening of symptoms) before the next dose is due. An “on-off” effect might also occur, in which sudden short periods of stiffness occur. If these effects occur, contact your doctor for dose adjustments that may help to lessen this effect.

Do not stop taking this medication and the levodopa-containing product without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when these drugs are quickly reduced or suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually reduced. (See also the Side Effects section.)

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.

Side Effects

Side effects with carbidopa are rare and usually occur due to the levodopa-containing product that is taken together with it. The following side effects in this section may occur due to levodopa.

Dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, trouble sleeping, unusual dreams, or headache may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

This medication (or levodopa) may cause saliva, urine, or sweat to turn a dark colour. This effect is harmless, but your clothes may be stained.

To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position.

Remember that this medication has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects, including chest pain.

Abruptly stopping or reducing the dose of this medication and levodopa/carbidopa may rarely cause a serious condition called neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS). Get medical help right away if you have any of the following symptoms: fever, unusual muscle stiffness, severe confusion, sweating, fast/irregular heartbeat, and rapid breathing.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.
