Carbidopa/levodopa 10/100 and 25/250 formulations are also available. The DDI prevents the formation of dopamine peripherally, thereby allowing a lower dose of levodopa to be administered and reducing the risk of associated nausea or vomiting. Levodopa crosses the blood–brain barrier, where it is converted by endogenous aromatic amino acid decarboxylase to dopamine, and then stored in surviving nigrostriatal neuronal terminals. While there is some variation in clinical practice, immediate-release levodopa is usually commenced in a dose of 50–100 mg per day, increasing every 3–4 days until a dose of 50–100 mg three times daily is reached.
