Drug Description


This combination pharmaceutical product comprises two essential constituents: levodopa and benserazide. Collectively, these components are employed in the management of Parkinson’s disease. 

Parkinson’s disease is a neurological condition characterized by an insufficient supply of dopamine in the brain, leading to impaired motor function. Levodopa effectively mitigates the manifestations of Parkinson’s disease by rectifying the underlying chemical imbalance responsible for these symptoms. While levodopa can be administered as a standalone therapy, the addition of benserazide serves to optimize its therapeutic efficacy, enabling the reduction of the requisite levodopa dosage and potentially mitigating adverse effects such as nausea and vomiting, which are commonly associated with levodopa treatment. however, while levodopa offers relief from Parkinson’s disease symptoms, it does not impede the progression of the ailment. 

Uses and Dosage 

Commencement of therapy with levodopa-benserazide should be initiated at conservative dosages, with a gradual titration regimen aimed at minimizing potential adverse reactions while optimizing therapeutic outcomes. 

For individuals who have not previously been exposed to levodopa, the recommended initial dosage consists of one capsule containing levodopa 100 mg and benserazide 25 mg, administered once or twice daily. The treating physician typically follows a dose escalation protocol, augmenting the dosage by one capsule every third or fourth day until an optimal therapeutic effect is achieved without incurring undesirable side effects. 

As the dosage level increases, the healthcare provider may elect to extend the intervals for dosage increments to every 2 to 4 weeks. Furthermore, divide the daily dose, ensuring that the medication is administered at a minimum of four times per day, either in conjunction with meals or immediately following meals.
