    I posted a while ago and now my son, 28 months, has started on what his doctor called a whiff of Levodopa / Carbidopa.He takes asolution that is made by our Pharmacist. I don't know how it compares to a Sinemet tablet but I'm interested. He said it's .0625 Carbidopa - 2.5 Levadopa mg per ml, which he's on 1 ml 4 x a day.
