Not used on its own, entacapone works with carbidopa and levodopa to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Some of the symptoms it treats are stiffness, tremors, muscle spasms, and poor muscle control.
Entacapone needs to work in tandem with carbidopa and levodopa at the right dose, so be sure to follow your doctor and prescription label’s directions.
You can either take the medication with or without food. Food is recommended to help prevent any risk of nausea. But no matter your preference for food intake, you should still drink lots of liquids while on this medication.
After taking your dose, store the remaining medication away in an area at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
This medication may make you fall asleep without warning during your regular daytime activities. This drowsiness can happen even when you’re alert, so try to avoid activities that require alertness like driving. And call your doctor as soon as possible if you are experiencing this situation.
Side effects for entacapone include drowsiness, nausea, diarrhea, and dry mouth.
Call your doctor right away if you notice serious symptoms such as: agitation, unusual thoughts or behavior, hallucinations, stiff muscles, high fever, tremors, severe or ongoing diarrhea, restless muscle movements, or unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness.
To lower your risk for some of these side effects, try to avoid alcoholic beverages. Drinking alcohol can increase the likelihood of entacapone side effects.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
