Drug Description


Stalevo 150 is a combination medication used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. It helps alleviate symptoms such as muscle stiffness, tremors, spasms, and poor muscle control associated with Parkinson’s disease.  

Stalevo contains carbidopa, levodopa, and entacapone. The tablet is brownish and elongated-ellipse-shaped. The specific dosage of Stalevo 150 is 37.5 mg of carbidopa, 150 mg of levodopa, and 200 mg of entacapone. It is prescribed for adult patients with Parkinson’s disease who experience end-of-dose motor fluctuations that are not stabilized on levodopa/dopa. 

Use and Dosage 

Stalevo 150 is typically taken orally as a tablet, with or without food, following the instructions given by your doctor. Usually, it is taken 3 to 4 times a day. Swallow the tablet whole with water and avoid crushing, chewing, or breaking it, unless specifically instructed by your healthcare professional. Because changing the dosages can affect how the medication is released and absorbed in your body. 

The dosage and frequency of administration will be determined by your healthcare professional based on several factors, such as the severity of your symptoms and your response to treatment. Follow their prescribed instructions for the medication. 

If you happen to miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is already close to the time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.
