Levodopa is generally used indefinitely in patients with Parkinson's Disease.

Levodopa is a medication used to treat Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is associated with low levels of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. Levodopa is turned into dopamine in the body and therefore increases levels of this chemical.

Levodopa is used to treat the stiffness, tremors, spasms, and poor muscle control of Parkinson's disease.
