What is Ongentys used for?

This medication is used with other medications (levodopa/carbidopa) to treat Parkinson's disease. Opicapone belongs to a class of drugs known as COMT inhibitors. Many people taking levodopa for Parkinson's disease have problems with the effects of levodopa wearing off between scheduled doses, which causes symptoms to return or get worse. Opicapone blocks a certain natural substance (COMT) that breaks down levodopa in the body. This effect helps levodopa to work better and for a longer time.
