Earl has been taking entacapone the generic form of comcan for a about a year, It really helped him. He was able to reduce the amount of carbodopa/levadopa and go longer between doses

Just added Comcan to my c/l, my dyskinesia went wild. I was experiencing it 8 hrs straight. Thinking about living with the off times. Also sweats all day.

Never took comtan. Mirpex put 80lbs on me after I went off of it I lost down to 92 lbs because my PD got worse not because of the mirpex . Only the weight gain was reaction.

My husband started Rytary 3 or 4 months ago. His doses were increased from 3 pills three times a day to 4 pills three times a day. He hasn't had any negatives about taking it so far. We do go back to his neurologist next month.
