Buy Comtan brand or generic Entacapone prescription drug from Canada
Why is Comtan prescribed?
Comtan, with the generic name Entacapone, is used together with other medications (Levodopa and Carbidopa) to manage the end-of-dose (wearing-off of the effect of the drug) symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
What does it do?
Entacapone, classified under Catechol-O-Methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors, allows the effects of levodopa and carbidopa to reach the brain more efficiently to facilitate their effects and help prevent the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease such as stiffness, tremors, spasms, or uncontrollable movements.
How should I take it?
Comtan is currently available as a 200mg tablet taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
