WHAT


Madopar is a medicine invented by Swiss pharmaceutical company Roche which is the brand name form of the drug benserazide. It is classed as a peripherally acting aromatic l-amino acide decarboxylase (AADC) or DOPA decarboxylase inhibitor. Madopar is a blend of two medicines called levodopa and benserazide which are used to help treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. It works by the levodopa converting into dopamine while the benserazide acts by enabling your brain to uptake more levodopa and so indirectly boosts the benefits of levodopa. 

WHY


Parkinson's disease is characterised by an insufficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine which can lead to slow, stiff body movements and tremors that the sufferer is unable to control. By enabling Parkinson's sufferers to obtain more dopamine, Madopar helps lessen the severity of these symptoms.

WHO


Both men and women suffering from Parkinson's disease can be prescribed Madopar  although there are certain conditions which mean it should not be taken such as if the user suffers from depression, have overactive thyroid glands to name a couple of the instances where it would not be appropriate for an individual. In addition, Madopar should not be used by patients under the age of 25 due to an adverse effect it can have on bone development.

WHEN


Madopar should be taken exactly as instructed by your physician as dosing and timing can vary significantly. In general, it is suggested Madopar should be taken with food and with a small starting dose with slow titration upwards.
