Comtan Uses

How Does Comtan Work?

Comtan is always used in combination with carbidopa and levodopa; it has no activity against Parkinson's disease when used alone. The drug works by increasing blood levels of levodopa and helping levodopa last longer in the body. Comtan works by inhibiting an enzyme known as catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) that breaks down levodopa before it has a chance to reach the brain.
