Stalevo 100
Carbidopa/levodopa/entacapone


This combination medication is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson s disease. Parkinson s disease is believed to be due to a lack of an important chemical (dopamine) in the brain. Levodopa is converted into dopamine in the brain, leading to the relief of Parkinson s disease symptoms. Both carbidopa and entacapone are given with levodopa to increase the amount of levodopa that is converted into dopamine.
