Entacapone

Drug Info for entacapone

Entacapone is an inhibitor of catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT). It is used in combination with levodopa and carbidopa (Sinemet) to treat the end-of-dose 'wearing-off' symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Entacapone helps the levodopa and carbidopa work better by allowing more of it to reach the brain, where it has its effects. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Comtan is used along with other medications (levodopa/carbidopa) to treat symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease including stiffness, tremors, muscle spasms, and poor muscle control. Comtan works by blocking COMT enzyme that breaks down the levodopa in the body allowing it to last longer before the next dose.

Take your medicine as directed. Your dose may need to be changed several times to find what works best for you.

Missed dose: Take a dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, wait until then and take a regular dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up for a missed dose.
