Why is Neupro prescribed?
Rotigotine (Neupro) is prescribed for the treatment of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. It is also used for the treatment of a condition called restless legs syndrome (RLS).
What does it do?
Parkinson’s disease is due to low or inadequate levels of dopamine (a chemical substance in the brain) causing muscle stiffness, tremors, and balance problems. Restless legs syndrome is a condition that causes an unpleasant sensation in the legs, urging you to move them to ease the discomfort. Rotigotine is classified as a dopamine agonist that primarily works by acting similarly to dopamine, allowing your body to regain its normal movements.
How should I apply it?
Neupro and its generic equivalents are currently available as 2mg and 4mg patches. The patch should only be applied to the skin.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Neupro?
Before applying Rotigotine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had asthma, blood pressure problems, mental illness, heart disease, or a sleeping disorder.
Rotigotine may cause drowsiness. When getting up from a lying or sitting position, do it slowly and sit for a few minutes before standing up completely. Avoid drinking alcohol as this may also cause drowsiness which can add to the effects of Rotigotine.
If you will undergo medical procedures such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or cardioversion, inform your doctor that you are using Rotigotine.
