Within 4 hours, began to feel nauseated and soon started dry heaving. Room began spinning...became very dizzy. Arms and legs became limp. Ended up in ER to stop symptoms. After 10 days felt better, but extreme symptoms returned with another trip to ER. Suspected vertigo.....brought on by Comtan?? I will never take another comtan!

I've been taking this medication for 9 years and it has helped control my Parkinson's. I'm in the process of increasing the Comtan now.

Started taking 200mg, 3x per day, with l-dopa.Worked very well to control tremor and improve general mood and co-ordination but then, after 3 months use, diarrhoea started and has continued for a month with no sign of abating. Can this be "fixed"?. I would like to continue with the Comtan BUT this intestinal side effect is a difficult one to live with!
