Step Three: Drugs
Combination of levodopa and carbidopa is one of the best strategies for treating Parkinson’s disease. Levodopa behaves like dopamine, which is important for activation of the brain. Carbidopa stops the treatment of Levodopa with the liver, thus avoiding negative phenomena (for example, nausea). In addition, the drug helps a significant amount of Levodopa reach the brain. This removes bradykinesia, which allows the body, as well as legs and arms to increase flexibility and mobility.
