    About Azilect (Rasagiline)

    The active ingredient is known as rasagiline. We also offer generic rasagiline manufactured by Sun Pharma.

    What is Azilect used for?

    Azilect or rasagiline is an oral medicine for treating people with Parkinson’s disease. The disease has symptoms such as tremors, spasms, poor muscle control, and stiffness. Azilect is grouped in a class of medicines known as monoamine oxidase inhibitors or MAOIs. Regarding how it works, it increases the levels of dopamine in the brain.

    People who have Parkinson’s disease tend to have a dopamine deficiency. This is triggered by the loss of cells that generate dopamine in given areas of their brain. This drug corrects the problem by blocking the MAO (monoamine oxidase) enzyme that breaks down dopamine and other monoamine chemicals. Hence, it helps raise the amount of dopamine in the brain, which improves Parkinson’s disease.

    How is Azilect dosage taken?

    It should be taken by adults with Parkinson’s disease with a usual dose of 1mg one daily. It is an oral medicine. The maximum dosage you can take is 1mg once every day. An adjunct therapy in people who are also taking levodopa is 0.5mg one time per day. Those who are not on concomitant levodopa should take 0.5mg one time every day. Their final maintenance dose should be 0.5mg to 1mg once per day.

    Generally, it should be taken the way the doctor prescribes it. Therefore, make sure you follow every instruction well to ensure your safety and health.  This drug is easier to take on its own than when it is combined with other Parkinson’s disease medicines.  As a result, following your doctor’s instructions fully is important. If you are on a special Parkinson’s disease diet plan, don’t alter it without consulting your nutritionist.  If it does not improve your symptoms, don’t stop it prior to informing your doctor. In fact, stopping it suddenly could give you terrible withdrawal symptoms.
