DUOPA IS DIFFERENT

Duopa is different since it delivers levodopa continuously over 16 hours. This can help you get back more time in your day.

*In a clinical trial, 71 advanced Parkinson’s patients with persistent “off” time, despite taking Parkinson’s medications (including carbidopa/levodopa pills), took either Duopa or carbidopa/levodopa immediate-release (IR) pills for 12 weeks. The change in average daily “off” time from study start to Week 12 was measured over 16-hour days during which patients were awake. At study beginning, average daily “off” time: 6.3 hours in Duopa group, 6.9 hours in carbidopa/levodopa IR pill group.

FREES YOU FROM SO MANY LEVODOPA PILLS

Patients remained on other Parkinson’s medications and could take carbidopa/levodopa IR pills as needed for nighttime or rescue.

Based on average oral levodopa dose (25-mg carbidopa/100-mg levodopa).

Your doctor will individualize your Duopa dose to meet your needs – and may adjust your other Parkinson’s medications, too.


Think about how often you take levodopa pills. What if you had fewer interruptions in your day?
