>3. could you be more specific as to how she is doing on simemet when there is no dyskinesias, what sinemet formulation she is taking and dosages.
I could not get specifics about this yet... She is down to 1 pill 3 times a day and added Amantadine to try and control tremmors and keep the Siniemet low.
>4, is she seeing a neuro and what is their opinon about the dyskinesia?
Yes she is, but I doubt that I'll get a good answer as I don't know how detailed they get with the doctor. I hope that will change after this experience.
