Syndopa 10+100 mg is a combination of Carbidopa and Levodopa and is used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. These drugs are used in combination to treat the symptoms of the Parkinson’s such as shakiness, stiffness and difficulty moving etc. This combination may be used alone or with other medicines for Parkinson's disease. The medicine is effective in reducing the severity of symptoms brought on by Parkinson’s disease. This drug does not cure the disease. Levodopa acts as dopamine and helps the brain to function normally. The Dopamine levels falls drastically when the persons become a Parkinson’s patient. Carbidopa prevents the breakdown of Levodopa so that more of the drug is released in the blood stream. Levodopa, the dopamine agonist (the active ingredient in Syndopa) works just like the natural dopamine. It helps the brain to function better and is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as stiffness, tremors, muscle spasms, and poor muscle control.
