Tolcapone Drug Information

Based on the information gathered in clinical trials, tolcapone (Tasmar®) appears to be a beneficial drug for Parkinson's disease. This prescription product is designed to be used in combination with carbidopa-levodopa products (Sinemet®, Sinemet CR, or Parcopa®), and is specifically designed for people who are experiencing carbidopa-levodopa fluctuation symptoms, such as "wearing-off" (when the medication stops working before the next dose).
 
Common side effects of tolcapone (when combined with carbidopa-levodopa) may include:
 
  • Involuntary movements (dyskinesia)
  • Nausea
  • Sleeping problems, such as insomnia.
  •
