Does Carb/Levo help with RLS? Can this medication cause rebound symptoms like Sinement does?
Sinemet is a brand name for carbidopa/levodopa. These are essentially the same medication. This is used most commonly to help lessen motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease. It can often also be helpful to lessen symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS).
