How should I take Tasmar/Tolcapone?

How much medicine you take and how often you take it depend on many factors, including the condition being treated and the age and weight of the patient. If you have any questions about the amount and/or frequency of the medicine you are taking, talk with your health care provider. Do not stop taking this medicine without checking with your health care provider. Patients with previous medical conditions should talk with their health care provider before taking this medicine. Do not take more medicine than prescribed unless advised to do so by your health care provider. Do not take any other over-the-counter or prescription medications without talking with your health care provider. If a dose is missed, take it as soon as possible. If several hours have passed or if it is nearing time for the next dose, do not double the dose to catch up, unless advised by your health care provider. If more than one dose is missed, contact your health care provider or pharmacist.During the first few weeks of treatment with this medicine, be prepared for certain side effects that appear most frequently at the start of therapy. Among the possibilities: attacks of dizziness or fainting when you first stand up, hallucinations, nausea, and increased stiffness. These problems tend to diminish with the passage of time or a reduction in your Sinemet dosage. However, they have forced a few people to discontinue treatment with this medicine. This medicine works by boosting the efficacy of Sinemet, and will not work without it. This medicine can be taken with either the immediate-release or controlled-release form of the drug (Sinemet or Sinemet CR). You may take it with or without food. This drug is taken 3 times a day. Always take the first dose of this medicine with your first dose of Sinemet. Take your second and third doses of this medicine 6 and 12 hours later. (Your doctor will probably decrease your dose of Sinemet when you start taking this medicine).
