Syndopa Plus Tablet works by increasing the dopamine in the brain for proper brain functioning and allowing more levodopa to enter the brain. The combination of two ingredients Levodopa and Carbidopa work in sync with each other to boost their mutual effect in treating Parkinsonism. Levodopa, a dopamine precursor gets converted to dopamine, that is a chemical messenger required to control movement in the brain. Carbidopa, known to be a peripheral decarboxylase inhibitor prevents the instant breakdown of levodopa allowing it to enter the brain and increase dopamine levels.
