Carbidopa tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
If you forget to take a dose of carbidopa, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. If you forget to take a dose of carbidopa but remember to take your levodopa, it is likely that you may experience nausea and vomiting (since carbidopa helps to prevent nausea and vomiting due to levodopa).
Carbidopa is available in generic form (see Generic Lodosyn).
Brand-name Lodosyn is made by Merck & Co., Inc., and marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.
