Parkinson's Disease

I am taking carb/levo for Parkinson`s Disease

08/09/2006

Question:

Can I take b vitamins with the medication b2, b6,b12 with this medication. also b3 b1

Answer:

There is no reason why the B vitamins cannot be taken in persons with PD on carbidopa/levodopa.  Vitamin B6 can interfere with the absorption of levodopa, but with the addition of carbidopa to the medication (as in the pill Sinemet), this effect is overcome.
