Comtan (entacapone)

Has anyone tried this? For Parkinson patients it is prescribed to make the levodopa effects last longer. On those really bad days we all have it seems as if I am dosing myself every 4-6 hours. I only take 1/2 of a 25/50 pill at a time but it would be great if I would be able to stretch that out to every 8 hours before symptoms start in again

Sorry. Didn't catch that I didn't tap the 2 hard enough. Should have read 25/250 levodopa/,vanilla. Also ran across a med named Stalevo that is a combo of levodopa, carbidopa and entacapone.

No way to turn spell check off on this stupid Amazon tablet (,don',t get one). Obviously I am not taking vanilla. Should be levodopa
