I ended up calling the Neurologist’s call service, as stomach cramps have joined the nausea, even though I’ve been super careful with what I’ve eaten today. I’ve had crackers with the Sinemet, too, but nothing’s helping.
I was extremely impressed with how quickly I got a call back from the doctor on call this weekend. He’s phoned in a prescription to our pharmacy, on the chance they leave an answering machine on when they’re not open. I’m to call the drugstore in the morning to see if they got the message. If not, I’ll have to phone the doctor’s office in the morning, and they’ll call in the prescription. All this rigamarole, because we live in a little town that’s lucky to even have a drugstore at all, even if it is closed at night and on the weekend.
In the meantime, he told me to not take any more Sinemet until I get this new medicine. I will be taking it with each dose of Sinemet from now on. He said the name of the med, but I forgot it by the time I got off the phone.
