Azilect is a brand name medication used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease such as stiffness, slow movement and shakiness. It is an MAO-B inhibitor.
Doctors prescribe Azilect to balance the level of certain brain chemicals which are responsible for the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, like shakiness and difficulty moving. In the initial stages of the disease, Azilect is often used alone (monotherapy). As the disease progresses, your doctor may prescribe additional medication to manage the symptoms.
It is thought that Parkinson’s disease is caused by reduced levels of certain chemicals in the brain such as dopamine. Rasagiline is the generic ingredient in Azilect and it works by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, thereby improving symptoms such as muscle rigidity.
The recommended and maximum dose is 1mg taken orally once daily. Azilect can be taken with or without food.
These may not be all the side effects of Azilect 0.5mg.
Do not use this medication if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. You should not take take Azilect if you have moderate to severe liver disease. If you are taking certain drugs like Demerol, Dextromethorphan, Cyclobenzaprine, other MAO inhibitors, pain medication or St. John’s Wort, do not use Azilect.
Some people feel sleepy with this medication so it is very important not to drive until you know how Azilect affects you. Let your doctor know if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breast-feeding.

Parkinson’s disease is a disorder of the central nervous system caused by a lack of dopamine – a chemical in the brain used to send messages to your muscles to make them move. It mainly affects middle-aged and elderly people. Symptoms include tremor, shaking, trembling, slowed movement, stiffness and balance difficulties. Currently there is no cure. You can live with Parkinson's disease for years. The symptoms are treated with medication. People can also benefit from physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and exercise.
