Getting to Know Duopa
Join us for the educational question and answer program to learn more about recently approved Duopa as a treatment option for Parkinson’s. Duopa is a suspension form of carbidopa and levodopa that’s delivered continuously into the intestine over 16 hours through a tube. Duopa is delivered by a small portable pump, which you carry or wear as you go about your day. Hear from a Duopa nurse educator and an individual with Parkinson’s who can answer your questions and share their experiences with this medication.
