Syncapone 100 Mg
Syncapone 100 Mg Tablet is a combination medicine used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. These symptoms may include muscle stiffness, tremors, muscle spasms, poor muscle control, slowness of movement, etc. It may also be used to replace therapy with other medicines (carbidopa and levodopa combinations) if the patient is experiencing wearing-off symptoms. This medicine is not recommended for use in patients less than 18 years of age.
Syncapone 100 Mg Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Levodopa, Carbidopa and Entacapone which treat Parkinsonism.
Levodopa is a Carbidopa precursor which gets converted to dopamine, a chemical messenger that controls movement in the brain. Carbidopa is a peripheral decarboxylase inhibitor which prevents the breakdown of Levodopa allowing it to enter the brain and increase dopamine levels. Entacapone is COMT inhibitor which causes higher and more sustained levels of levodopa in blood, leading to greater relief from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
