Description of Tasmar
Tasmar contains Tolcapone, which is a catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) inhibitor. It is given to the patient in the form of oral tablets.
Indications & Dosage of Tasmar
Your doctor may recommend you to buy Tasmar along with Carbidopa and Levodopa. This combination is successful in treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, including stiffness, muscle spasms, poor muscle control, and tremors. It is usually given only to patients who have not successfully responded to Carbidopa or Levodopa when used individually. Tasmar works by blocking COMT enzyme in the body, which is responsible for breaking down Levodopa. In this way, Levodopa lasts longer in the patient’s body, and its effects do not wear off so soon.
Your doctor may usually prescribe Tasmar 100mg orally 3 times a day. The treatment starts with a low dose, after which it is increased depending on the patient’s response to the treatment. You can take Tasmar tablets with or without meals.
Side Effects & Interactions of Tasmar
Some common side effects associated with Tasmar include constipation or diarrhea, dry mouth, tiredness, headache, unusual skin changes, drowsiness, dizziness, cold symptoms, sleep problems, agitation, anxiety, and dreaming more than usual. These are mild side effects of Tasmar, and there’s no reason for you to discontinue using the medicine if they do not worsen. However, you should seek medical attention immediately if you develop any of the following symptoms:
- Stomach pain, nausea, loss of appetite, low fever, dark urine, yellowing of the eyes or skin, clay-colored stools
- Fever, confusion, stiff muscles, sweating
- Chest tightness, trouble breathing
- Burning or pain while urinating
- Ongoing or severe diarrhea
- Muscle tenderness, pain or weakness accompanied by dark urine, fever and flu symptoms
Symptoms such as hives, breathing problems and swollen face or throat are signs of an allergy. If you develop any of these symptoms, this means that you are allergic to Tolcapone and you should immediately discontinue taking the drug. Seek medical attention immediately if any of these symptoms persist even after stopping the drug.
Some of the medicines that may interact with Tasmar include MAO inhibitors (e.g. furazolidoen, linezolid or isocarboxazid). As Tasmar causes dizziness, do not use it along with other medicines that cause the same effect. Such drugs include narcotic pain relievers, antidepressants, sleeping pills, sedatives, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-seizure medicines, muscle relaxants or antihistamines.
Warnings & Precautions of Tasmar
Do not buy Tasmar if you have an allergy to it, if you have a liver disease, or if you ever had fever, confusion or muscle damage due to a drug. Inform your doctor beforehand if you have kidney disease or low blood pressure. He or she may need to take some special or make dosage adjustments if you have any of these medical conditions.
As Tasmar makes you dizzy, you should not drive a vehicle, operate a machine, or do any such activity that requires complete alertness. Otherwise, a serious accident may take place. Also avoid alcohol intake, as it may worsen the side effect of dizziness.
