Carbidopa is a medication that is usually prescribed in combination with levodopa products to treat Parkinson's disease and Parkinson-like symptoms due to various other causes. When used alone, the drug has no activity against Parkinson's disease. The drug, which comes in the form of tablets, helps to prevent side effects that often accompany levodopa therapy, such as nausea and vomiting.
