Description

Modular program-based one-time assessment of the use of three different drugs for Parkinson’s Disease, carbidopa/levodopa, entacapone, and combination product carbidopa, levodopa, and entacapone (Stalevo), in the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database. Two categories of counts were generated: (1) incident counts with respect to each of the medications, and (2) prevalent counts (i.e., counts of users with at least one dispensing during the period of interest [January 2000- December 2010]). Modular programs are adaptable standardized programs. Results were generated using Modular Program 1; click here for more information. Programs were executed in February 2011.
