Entacapone Drug Information

Entacapone (Comtan®) is a Parkinson's disease medication that comes in the form of a tablet. It is approved to be added to carbidopa-levodopa products (Sinemet®, Sinemet® CR, or Parcopa®) in people experiencing carbidopa-levodopa "wearing-off" symptoms (when the medication stops working before the next dose). The medication is taken along with each dose of carbidopa-levodopa.
 
Before starting entacapone, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. This Parkinson's medication is not suitable for everyone, so tell your healthcare provider about all your current medications and any medical conditions you have, such as gallbladder disease, lung problems, or any allergies. This will help ensure your safety and reduce your risk of complications.
