We saw a doctor yesterday who would like my son to use Sinemet to try and help distonia. Anyone using this medication? My son Charlie is 6.

    Hi again,as the Sinemet was not preventing the distonia we have stopped using it. Charlie has a fear of high ceilings especially when he is laid on his back. We try our best now not to expose him to this fear.

    Sorry I am not much help!
