Ropinirole No Prescription

Ropinirole is prescribed for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Also used for the treatment of restless legs syndrome.
Ropinirole is prescribed alone or with other prescriptions to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD; a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance), including shaking of parts of the body, stiffness, slowed movements, and problems with balance. Ropinirole is also used to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS; a condition that causes discomfort in the legs and a strong urge to move the legs, especially at night and when sitting or lying down). Ropinirole is in a class of prescriptions called dopamine agonists. It works by acting in place of dopamine, a natural substance in the brain that is needed to control movement.

Ropinirole is a non-ergoline dopamine agonist, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. It is prescribed in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, and is also one of two prescriptions in the United States with an FDA-approved indication for the treatment of restless legs syndrome (the other being Pramipexole).

Ropinirole Contraindications

Ropinirole is contraindicated for patients known to have hypersensitivity to the product.

Ropinirole Without a Prescription

Ropinirole comes as a tablet to take by mouth. When ropinirole is used to treat Parkinson's disease, it is usually taken three times a day. When ropinirole is used to treat restless legs syndrome, it is usually taken once a day, 1 to 3 hours before bedtime. Ropinirole may be taken with or without food, but taking ropinirole with food may help to prevent nausea that may be caused by the prescription.

Your doctor will start you on a low dose of ropinirole and gradually increase your dose. If you are taking ropinirole to treat Parkinson's disease, your doctor will probably not increase your dose more often than once a week. If you are taking ropinirole to treat restless legs syndrome, your doctor will probably increase your dose after 2 days, again at the end of the first week, and then not more often than once a week. It may take several weeks before you reach a dose that works for you. If you are taking ropinirole to treat restless legs syndrome, you may receive a starter kit that contains tablets of increasing strength to be taken during the first 2 weeks of your treatment. The dose of prescription you will need depends on how well the prescription works for you and may be different than the doses contained in the kit. Your doctor will tell you how to use the kit and whether you should take all the tablets it contains. Follow these directions carefully.

Ropinirole controls the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome but does not cure these conditions.

If you stop taking ropinirole for any reason, do not start to take the prescription again without talking to your doctor. Your doctor will probably want to increase your dose again gradually.

Ropinirole is a nonergot dopamine agonist with high relative in vitro specificity and full intrinsic activity at the D2 subfamily of dopamine receptors, binding with higher affinity to D3 than to D2 or D4 receptor subtypes. The relevance of D3 receptor binding in Parkinson's disease is unknown. The mechanism of ropinirole-induced postural hypotension is presumed to be due to a D2 -mediated blunting of the noradrenergic response to standing and subsequent decrease in peripheral vascular resistance.
