I started taking entacapone in February - by March I started with diarrhoea which I put down to a tummy bug. I was reluctant to stop taking it due to the beneficial effects.
Between April-May I tried a bland diet without any luck then dairy free. However it got so bad (despite taking immodium - which had not effect on it whatsoever-) I decided to stop taking entacapone and the diarrohea stopped instantaneously.
There is a new drug out called OPICAPONE that has been prescribed by my consultant, but is at present unavailable on the NHS so has to be bought privately until it is approved by the NHS
I am would be very grateful for any information from anyone who has started taking this - pros &/or cons.
