Indication

Comtan is used to treat Parkinson's disease. It is prescribed along with levodopa/carbidopa (Sinemet) to increase the effect of each dose of Sinemet. It relieves the stiffness and tremors of Parkinson's for a longer period of time. It inhibits the effect of an enzyme that breaks the levodopa in Sinemet.
