Entacapone is the main active pharmaceutical ingredient present in Entacom tablets. Entacapone is an inhibitor of catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), used in treating Parkinson's disease.
Entacapone, in combination with levodopa and carbidopa, helps relieve symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, muscle spasms, and poor muscle control. Entacapone works by increasing the levels of levodopa and carbidopa in the brain, thereby helping to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
