Tolcapone is employed in conjunction with other medications, such as levodopa/carbidopa, for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. It falls into the category of drugs known as COMT inhibitors. Individuals taking levodopa for Parkinson’s often encounter challenges with the effects of levodopa wearing off between scheduled doses, leading to the return or exacerbation of symptoms. Tolcapone operates by inhibiting a specific natural substance responsible for breaking down levodopa in the body. This action extends the duration of levodopa’s effectiveness in the system, preventing it from wearing off before the next scheduled dose.

Uses and Dosage

Tolcapone is available in tablet form for oral administration and is typically taken three times a day. It is often prescribed in conjunction with levodopa and carbidopa by your doctor.

Adhere to the prescribed directions for taking tolcapone without deviation—neither exceeding nor reducing the dosage or frequency without your doctor’s approval.

To derive the maximum benefit from this medication, use it consistently and take it at the same times each day.

While tolcapone effectively manages symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, it does not cure the condition. Continue taking tolcapone even if you feel well. Do not discontinue the medication abruptly without consulting your doctor, as sudden cessation may result in high fever and confusion.

Keep your doctor informed about the duration and progression of your condition, especially if your Parkinson’s symptoms are not adequately controlled. Maintain open communication to ensure appropriate adjustments to your treatment plan.

  • This medication may cause dizziness or drowsiness. The consumption of alcohol or marijuana can intensify these effects. Refrain from activities requiring alertness, such as driving or operating machinery, until you can do so safely.

How is Tasmar different from carbidopa/levodopa?

Carbidopa and levodopa is a first-choice treatment option for Parkinson’s that can be taken alone. On the other hand, Tasmar should only be taken in combination with carbidopa and levodopa, if the latter alone isn’t working.

Can you drink alcohol with Tasmar?

It’s best to avoid alcohol while you’re taking Tasmar, as they can both cause serious liver problems, confusion, sleepiness, and dizziness.
