Information on Side Effects
Just like any medicine, carbidopa-levodopa can cause side effects. Most people tolerate it relatively well at first, especially if the dose is slowly increased. If problems do occur, in many cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. As time goes by, it is common for more bothersome and serious side effects to occur.
Common side effects with this medication include but are not limited to:
