What is Prolopa used for?


Prolopa (Levodopa/Benserazide) is used to treat Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is an illness that develops from a lack of the chemical dopamine, which helps the body move normally. Prolopa controls the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease by correcting the chemical imbalance and increasing dopamine levels in the brain. The two chemicals, Levodopa and Benserazide, work together to both relieve the symptoms and prevent serious side effects, Levodopa works to reduce the Parkinson’s symptoms and can be used alone, but adding Benserazide lowers the amount of Levodopa that is required and may also reduce some of the side effects such as nausea and vomiting that are associated with Levodopa. The use of Prolopa can reduce tremors, rigid muscles, speech changes, slow movements, as well as other symptoms, and can improve your overall quality of life. Prolopa is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, and will not slow down the progression of the disease. Take this medication as directed. Prolopa is best taken at least 4 times a day, with food to prevent nausea. Avoid eating protein when taking it as it can prevent Prolopa from being absorbed. Take Prolopa with a small snack such as crackers or biscuits. Swallow capsules whole and do not open them or dissolve them in liquid.

What Are the Possible Side Effects of Prolopa?


Common side effects of Prolopa include constipation, diarrhea, dizziness or light-headedness, fatigue, headache, increased sexual desire, increased sweating, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, or trouble sleeping. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice more severe side effects such as irregular breathing, compulsive behaviour, mood or mental changes, irregular heartbeat, fainting, signs of anemia (pale skin, unusual tiredness or weakness), signs of stomach bleeding (bloody, black, or tarry stools, spitting up blood, vomiting blood), vision changes, or signs of high blood sugar (increased urine production, increased need to urinate at night, increased thirst, fruity breath odor). This is not a complete list of side effects. Consult with your doctor to discuss any other possible side effects and how to manage them.
