Best Answer

The primary drug compounds for treating Parkinson's have been levodopa and carbidopa for many years. These help replace low dopamine levels where these cells have been destroyed in this part of the brain. In addition, newer agents as Comtan, Azilect and Tasmar have been used to add to the effects of these primary drugs. Cogentin and Artane may be used to control some of the side effects of both the disease and the drug therapy. Occasionally, seligilene has also been used.
