Carbidopa for Parkinson's Disease
Carbidopa (Lodosyn®) is just one of the medications available for Parkinson's disease. It may also be recommended for the treatment of Parkinson-like symptoms due to encephalitis, carbon monoxide poisoning, and manganese poisoning. Carbidopa is often used in combination with levodopa products to help eliminate some of the side effects that levodopa can cause. There are currently no widely accepted "off-label" uses for this drug.
