sinemet and prevard

Dear Kathrynne,

Will taking Sinemet and Prevacid interfere with the absorption of the Sinemet?

If they are both supposed to be taken on an empty stomach, how does one do this?

Dear Friend,
If you are taking the prevacid once daily, try to schedule it in between Sinemet doses. For example, if you take Sinemet at 7:00 am, 11:00 am, 3:00 pm, and 7:00 pm, and have your meals at 8:00 am, 12:00 noon, and 5:00 pm, ask your prescribing doctor if you can take the Prevacid at 7:30 am. That will give the Sinemet 30 minutes to clear the stomach; then the Prevacid will have 30 minutes to clear; then at 8:00 you should be able to have your breakfast without concern.

Let me know if you have further questions, or if this did not help.
Best regards,
Kathrynne Holden, MS
