Requip is a medication that doctors prescribe to treat Parkinson's disease. The active ingredient in Requip is a generic drug called ropinirole, which is a dopamine agonist and helps improve movement and reduce tremor.
Currently, medications for Parkinson’s disease focus on reducing symptoms. Doctors prescribe Requip alone or with another drug called levodopa to improve muscle movement.
Requip is a non-ergoline dopamine agonist, which activates post-synaptic dopamine receptors, thereby helping to improve mood and movement in patients with PD.
Take Requip tablets orally three times daily. It is important not to chew the tablets. Simply swallow them whole with water, alone or with a meal.
These may not be all the side effects of Requip 5mg.
You should not use Requip if you have a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of the tablet or if you are less than 18 years of age.
Tell your doctor of any medications you are taking at the same time, like ciprofloxacin (antibiotic), hormone replacement therapy, digoxin or theophylline. If you are taking L-dopa at the same time as Requip, there may be a worsening of dyskinesia and a dose adjustment may be needed. Prior to beginning Requip, let your doctor know about any heart, liver or kidney conditions that you have.
Keep Requip in a dry place. Store at room temperature, safely out of reach of children.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a slowly progressing movement disorder caused by decreasing amounts of a chemical in the brain called dopamine. Dopamine-producing cells in the area of the brain called the substantia nigra are lost. As a result, patients gradually lose control over their muscles. Symptoms may include stooped or hunched-over posture, soft or low voice, trouble moving or walking, small handwriting, twitching or shaking in your finger, thumb, chin or lip. PD affects about one in 100 people aged 65 or older. There is no definitive test for PD. The diagnosis is made by signs and symptoms, such as trembling at rest or a stooped and shuffling walk. While there is no cure right now, many patients can lead productive lives for many years. Treatment is individualized and aimed at decreasing symptoms. Treatment is usually recommended when symptoms are interfering with daily life. Certain medications help increase levels of dopamine in the brain. Levodopa is a medication that crosses the blood-brain barrier and gets converted to dopamine in the brain. Other drugs called dopamine agonists mimic the action of dopamine. Medications generally help reduce muscle stiffness, improve speed and coordination of movement and reduce shaking or tremor.
