What is Apo-Ropinirole?
Apo-Ropinirole belongs to a class of medications called dopamine agonists. The medication works by acting in place of the neurotransmitter dopamine, the natural substance needed to control body movement. It can assist in controlling symptoms such as shaking, muscle stiffness, slow movement and balance problems caused by Parkinsonís disease. The medication can also be used in smaller doses to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS), a condition that causes discomfort and a strong urge to move the legs.

How is Apo-Ropinirole used?
Apo-Ropinirole is usually taken orally 3 times per day when it is used to treat Parkinsonís disease. When used to treat restless legs syndrome, it should be taken 1 to 3 hours prior to bedtime or as directed by a doctor. To prevent nausea, the medication should be taken with some food along with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not broken, chewed or crushed to prevent too much of the drug from being released at once.

  • Nausea
