Requip is used to treat patients with Parkinson's disease. The generic ingredient, ropinirole is a type of drug called a dopamine agonist.
While the is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, medications help control the symptoms of the disease like shakiness and muscle stiffness. Doctors prescribe Requip, which mimics the action of dopamine, a brain chemical responsible for coordinated movement.
Since PD is thought to be caused by a shortage of the neurotransmitter called dopamine, Requip works by acting in place of dopamine in the brain. This helps improve symptoms of PD.
If you are taking other medicines for Parkinson's disease, the doctor may adjust the dose of these medicines while you are taking Requip. Take Requip tablets orally three times per day, with or without food.
These may not be all the side effects of Requip 2mg.
Do not use Requip if you have a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of its formulation. Do not use this medication if you are less than 18 years of age.
If you are taking levodopa at the same time, Requip may worsen certain side effects such as jerky movements (dyskinesia). Before starting this medication, tell you doctor if you have any problems with your heart, liver or kidneys. Let your doctor know about the medications you are taking as there is a risk of interactions, especially with theophylline, ciprofloxacin, hormone replacement therapy and digoxin.
Store Requip between 15° and 30°C. Keep the tablets away from light and moisture. Keep Requip in a safe place where children cannot reach or see them. Do not take any tablets after the expiry date.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, caused by a reduction of dopamine levels in the brain. Symptoms include impaired posture and balance, speech problems like slurring, slowed movement often with shorter steps, shaking typically starting in your hands and difficulty writing. “Pill rolling” is a common sign of PD where the thumb and forefinger rub together repeatedly. Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year. Most people are diagnosed over the age of 60 years but early-onset PD also occurs. There are no standard diagnostic tests for Parkinson’s. The doctor looks to see if there is stiffness in your limbs or neck, tremor in your arms, animation in your expression or walking abnormalities. Your doctor will also note how you are walking and how quickly you can regain your balance. While there is currently no way to slow the progression of the disease, treatment options are focused around replacing dopamine with levodopa. There are other medications that mimic the actions of dopamine, which makes the dopamine that you have more efficient.
