[Treatment of Parkinson's syndrome with a combination of levodopa and carbidopa].Arch Invest Med (Mex). 1977; 8(2):123-8.AI
It is widely known that administration of L-Dopa benefits patients with Parkinson's syndrome and combination of this drug with decarboxilase does it to a greater extent. In the present study 20 patients with Parkinson's syndrome received MK 486, a combination of L-Dopa and Carbidopa 10:1 (250 mg of the fomer and 25 mg of the latter). The aim of this study was to evaluate therapeutic activity of this drug combination. It was found that MK 486 is effective for controlling clinical manifestation in Parkinson's syndrome. Although side effects were seen frequently, they diminished or disappeared after time of drug administration.
