Rotigotine Drug Information

Parkinson's disease affects the way the brain coordinates with muscle movements. In this disease, a number of cells in the corpus luteum of the brain (subsentence negra) are damaged and die. These brain cells (dopaminergic neurons) transmit the message from the nerves to the spinal cord by producing a chemical called dopamine, which controls the movement of the body's muscles. When these brain cells are damaged, the amount of dopamine produced decreases. The combination of a decrease in brain cells and low levels of dopamine in the cells of this part of the brain causes slow and abnormal nerve signals to the muscles, which cause the main symptoms of Parkinson's disease, namely stiffness, tremors and slowness of movement. Rotigotine is a dopamine receptor agonist, meaning that it acts as a dopamine on similar receptors in the brain.

In fact, rotigotine acts as a substitute for dopamine, which helps reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Rotigotine may be used alone or in combination with other medicines to treat Parkinson's disease.

Rotigotine is used to treat Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). It is an uncomfortable feeling in the legs that the patient needs painkillers to move his legs. Rotigotine can reduce the distressing symptoms of this syndrome in a person.
