Medication Alert: Major changes to Sinemet and Levocarb

If you take Sinemet or the generic form Levocarb, please be aware that, over the past 18 months,

  • the supply of Sinemet and Levocarb has changed;
  • the markings on the Sinemet CR (controlled release) and Sinemet IR (immediate release) pills have also changed. These changes include new colours, shapes, markings, non-medicinal ingredients and storage conditions. The changes also affect how people take the drug and how physicians prescribe it, as the newly marked pills are no longer scored for splitting.For full details, visit parkinson.ca and read Medication – Sinemet changes.
