  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Medicare stopped paying for Comtan when I hit the "gap". The cost would have been over $700.00/month to continue. I had rationed it for the first half of the year, taking 2 each day instead of 4. I will not go back on, even though it helped. It doesn't make sense to go on it if I cannot continue all year. on the plus side, going off Comtan, I lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
