Sinemet supply problems

MSD has warned that the availability of Sinemet (levodopa/carbidopa) will be reduced from late 2009 until 2011.

The global shortage of the Parkinson’s disease treatment, which is due to a change in supply source, will affect all presentations of Sinemet, Sinemet CR and Half Sinemet CR.
