Special Warnings and Precautions

Drug Interactions

Phosphodiesterase inhibitors like papaverine decrease the antiparkinsonian effect of levodopa. When No-spa (drotaverine) is administered together with levodopa, rigidity and tremor may therefore become aggravated.


No case of No-Spa (drotaverine) overdose has been reported. In case of overdose, the patient should be closely monitored, and managed by symptomatic and supportive care. Suggested measures include emesis and/ or gastric lavage.
