What comes first, Sinimet or an Agonist?

sparky1109 posted:
As we all know there is no clinical test for PD so they give you some meds and if they help then you've got it. But what should they start out with? I was started on a dopamine agonist that almost immediately started having dangerous side effects. Within two years Carbo/Lebo was added and I was on the two drugs for seven years with severe sleep disorder and other side effects. I no longer take any agonist drugs and 2/3 of the Sinimet that I was taking. What is the protocol for deciding which class of drug to begin with? The literature on the net goes either way?
