Parkinson's disease Ropinirole Hydrochloride Apo-Ropinirole

Uses
Apo-Ropinirole (Ropinirole Hydrochloride) provides relief from Parkinson's disease symptoms. Its mechanism of action is related to the stimulation of dopamine receptors in the brain. Patients may be given this medicine as monotherapy or else in combination with levodopa (another medicine used for Parkinson's). It can even improve the effectiveness of levodopa. Parkinson's disease causes patients to become stiff and unsteady. Tremors are also common and in some cases, it may be difficult to move (on-off syndrome).

These symptoms occur due to a disturbance in the brain which affects the nerve cells responsible for movement. The active ingredient in this medicine is known as a dopamine agonist. Unlike other medicines used for Parkinson's, conversion to dopamine does not occur when it is absorbed by the body.

Instead, it acts on the dopamine receptors and causes the restoration of dopamine activity in the brain, which helps to correct the motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's. Another indication for this medicine is Ekbom syndrome (also known as restless leg syndrome or RLS). It works for this condition by lowering the urge to move the legs and relieving discomfort.

Dosage and Administration
Apo-Ropinirole (Ropinirole Hydrochloride) tablets contain 2mg of the active ingredient. However, your doctor will recommend gradual titration of the dosage. Adjustments to the daily dosage will be made based on the tolerance to the medicine as well as the clinical response. In some cases, patients may be told to start out with a dosage of 0.25mg, taken 3 times per day. After this initial period, the recommended changes will be gradually made by your doctor so that the therapeutic response can be maintained. Always follow the instructions that your doctor provides you with.

Side effects
Patients who receive Apo-Ropinirole (Ropinirole Hydrochloride) may experience side effects, such as:

  • Headache

  • Feeling anxious or agitated
  • Dry sensation affecting the mouth
  • Reduced memory or ability to concentrate

It is necessary that you promptly inform your doctor of any side effects which are experienced during the course of treatment. Urgent medical care will be needed should you experience hallucinations, loss of consciousness, fever or any other serious side effects that have not been listed here.

Precautions
Dopamine agonists (such as this one) have been associated with triggering abnormal urges, such as excessive gambling, an abnormal libido or unusual urges to purchase various items. Discuss this with your doctor before starting treatment.

Smoking cigarettes could make this medicine less effective.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Apo-Ropinirole (Ropinirole Hydrochloride) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
