Stalevo 125 is indicated for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It is specifically used in patients who are experiencing motor fluctuations, which are characterized by symptoms such as muscle stiffness, tremors, spasms, and poor muscle control.


  • Stalevo 125 should be taken orally, either with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. Taking it with food may help decrease nausea.
  • The usual dosage is 3 to 4 times a day, with one tablet taken for each dose. Swallow the tablet whole.
  • Take Stalevo 125 at regular intervals to maintain a steady amount of the drug in your body throughout the day. Your healthcare provider may occasionally adjust your dose based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
  • If you experience a "wearing-off" effect, where your symptoms worsen before the next dose is due, or an "on-off" effect, characterized by sudden short periods of stiffness, contact your healthcare provider. They may consider adjusting your dose to help alleviate these effects.
  • Take Stalevo 125 regularly and at the same times each day to derive the maximum benefit from the medication. 
  • If your condition does not improve or worsens, consult your healthcare provider for further guidance


  • Do not crush, chew, or split the tablet, as doing so may result in an incorrect dose and may also cause staining of the mouth, dentures, and saliva.
  • Avoid a high-protein diet during treatment, unless directed otherwise by your healthcare provider. A high-protein diet can decrease the amount of levodopa that your body absorbs, potentially affecting the effectiveness of the medication
  • Do not stop taking Stalevo 125 without consulting your healthcare provider, as abruptly discontinuing the medication can worsen certain conditions. Withdrawal symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, confusion, fever, and muscle stiffness, may occur if the medication is suddenly stopped. Your healthcare provider may gradually reduce your dose to prevent withdrawal symptoms, especially if you have been using Stalevo for a long time or in high doses.
