INTRODUCTION

ROPARK XL 2MG contains Ropinirole which belongs to the group of medicines called dopamine agonists. It is used to treat Parkinson’s disease in adult patients. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neuro-degenerative disorder, that predominately affects the dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. It is characterized by rigidity, tremor, defective posture and gait and drooling with or without dementia.

Generally, patients with Parkinson’s disease would have low levels of dopamine in some parts of their brains. Ropinirole acts similar to that of natural dopamine in the brain and helps in the reduction of symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. ROPARK XL 2MG can be taken alone or in combination with L-DOPA to achieve best results. Avoid smoking and consumption of alcohol while taking this medicine, because it may increase the risk of side effects.

While taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you experience any unusual behaviours (such as an unusual urge to gamble, drive or temptation to carry out certain activities that could harm yourself or others excessive eating or spending or increased sexual urges). After stopping or reducing the dose of ropinirole, inform your doctor if you experience any withdrawal symptoms such as depression, apathy, anxiety, fatigue, sweating or pain. Your doctor would suggest a suitable additional or alternative treatment for you.

The most common side effect of this medicine includes dizziness, drowsiness, feeling tired, nausea, vomiting or stomach pain. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms bothers you. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have any kidney, liver or heart disease. ROPARK XL 2MG is not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women and in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. Consult your doctor before taking.

HOW ROPARK XL 2MG WORKS

Dopamine is a chemical messenger that is required for controlling body movements (motor activity) in the brain. Ropinirole has neurological effects similar to that of natural dopamine. Stimulation of dopamine receptors by ropinirole improves motor function which helps in the reduction of symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

If you are switching from ropinirole immediate-release tablets to ROPARK XL 2MG, take your ropinirole immediate-release tablets normally, the day before you switch and take this medicine on the next day. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
