Looking for Dr. w/ Knowledge get off Sinemet

06/03/2011

Question:


I previously asked about DOCTORS known to be knowledgeable on getting people off sinemet. I did not ask for medical advice nor would i accept advice offered on line. Please read my question. Are there any DOCTORS with specific knowledge in getting people without PD off sinemet.

Answer:
