Entacom Plus 150 Tablet

Prescription Required

Introduction

Entacom Plus 150 Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. This medicine helps to reduce excessive shaking by slowing down the body movements. It works by increasing the amount of chemical messenger that is needed to control abnormal movements.

Entacom Plus 150 Tablet is taken with or without food, but better to avoid high protein meal and dairy products. However, it is advised to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this medicine in the dose and duration advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. You should never skip any doses and try to finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to the doctor as it can result in harmful effects.

This medicine may cause side effects like nausea, vomiting, constipation, discoloration of urine, and dryness in the mouth. It causes a sudden onset of dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you.  It is common to have diarrhea with this medicine, so drink plenty of fluids and watch for weight loss.

Take caution while taking medicine if you are suffering from liver or kidney disease. Your doctor should also know about all other medicines you are taking as many of these may make this medicine less effective or change the way it works. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning pregnancy or breastfeeding.

How Entacom Plus Tablet works

Entacom Plus 150 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.
