The literature is contradicting - some reports say papaverine may block the effects of levodopa ( a drug often give to treat parkinsons)
See http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/summary/231/8/845
Other sites report no drug interaction.

Other sites warn to tell your doctor if you have parkinsons

Check with your doctor before taking papaverine.
