Results Of Taking Generic Carb entacap Versus Stalevo
Could the efficacy of the generic carb/entacap tab levo 125mg be different than the brand name Stalevo for treating Parkinson's?

Generic For Stalevo
I have been on Carb/Entacap Tab Levo 150 for apprx 8 - 9 yrs for Parkinsons. Over the past 6 months I am bothered with bladder/kidney infections. Could there be a problem with a side effect of this medication.

Learn more UTI details here. I am wondering if one of the medications may be causing urinary retention? Have you had any tests done?
