Sinemet (Carbidopa/Levodopa) is a prescription antidyskinectic combination medication that is used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Levodopa works by controlling the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease by correcting the chemical imbalance in the brain that produces symptoms. Carbidopa helps prevent the breakdown of Levodopa in the bloodstream so more Levedopa can reach the brain. This medication can be used on its own or in combination with other medications for Parkinson’s disease.
