Clinical experience with requip modutab

Full Text:


The efficacy of dopamine receptor agonists (DRAs) is determined by a number of advantages. DRAs are recommended as the drugs of choice as monotherapy and in combination with levodopa to enhance the efficiency of therapy for extensive-stage Parkinson’s disease (PD) and to correct motor fluctuations and drug-induced dyskinesias. Controlled-release DRAs are of particular interest. The results of using requip modutab in PD are presented. Its efficacy in treating dyskinesias and fluctuations and the magnitude of side effects are evaluated.
