I have been on Carb/Entacap Tab Levo 150 for apprx 8 - 9 yrs for Parkinsons. Over the past 6 months I am bothered with bladder/kidney infections. Could there be a problem with a side effect of this medication. I also take Ropinirole 3 mg and Benztropine Tab. 0.5 mg. ## Have you been having trouble urinating, when you don't have an infection, like for a period of time before the infection occurs?
