I have Parkinson's and my doctor recently prescribed me levodopa. I'm relatively new to all of this, so can anyone share about levodopa? Are there any side effects I should look out for?

Thanks in advance

Hello @jolepark‍, thank you for opening this discussion! Let me tag some other members who can share their experiences with you!

Hi everyone, how are you today? Were you or your loved one prescribed levodopa for  your/their Parkinson's? Have you/they had any side effects? Did they go away with time or are they persistant? Is it helping?
