Parkinson's disease Rasagiline Rasalect

Uses
Rasalect (Rasagiline) is indicated for use in patients with the neurodegenerative condition Parkinson's disease. Its mode of action is increasing the levels of extracellular dopamine. The main ingredient in this drug belongs to a class of medications referred to as monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) inhibitors. By selectively inhibiting the action of an enzyme called MAO-B in the stratium, it helps to irreversibly prevent the metabolism and breakdown of dopamine, which in turn leads to an increase in the levels of dopamine.

This is important in the treatment of Parkinson's, as there is believed to be a link between depleted dopamine levels and the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, due to the essential role that dopamine plays in nervous transmission. Some patients may be given this medication together with levodopa, as part of a combined treatment designed to lengthen the effects of levodopa, thereby preventing a deterioration of its effects. However, it may also be used for monotherapy.

Dosage and Administration
Rasalect (Rasagiline) tablets contain 1mg of the active ingredient, and are administered by mouth. The correct dosage will differ from patient to patient, and it will need to be individualized by the doctor providing treatment. Usually, adult patients undergoing monotherapy with this medicine for the treatment of Parkinson's disease may be directed to take 1mg, once every day. However, this may differ for certain patients, and it will be necessary to strictly adhere to the dosage instructions that your doctor provides you with.

Side effects
Patients should note that Rasalect (Rasagiline) could cause side effects, which may include:

  • Perspiring
  • Drowsiness
  • Loss of libido
  • Low levels of energy
  • Body weight reduction

It will be necessary to make your doctor aware of all side effects that occur. Should you notice unusual behaviour, hallucinations, reflex problems, numbness, weakness or any other severe reactions, ensure that you get medical treatment immediately.

Precautions
Many other types of medications could cause serious drug interactions if combined with this medicine, or if they have been taken recently. Therefore, your doctor will require that you disclose all treatments you have recently undergone.

If you suffer from liver disease, you must inform your doctor of this before starting treatment. Also, should you experience the urge to gamble or unusual sexual urges, consult your doctor straight away.

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 Rasalect (Rasagiline) 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.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
