Rasagiline is used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, either as monotherapy or in combination with other medications. Its therapeutic effects include the relief of symptoms such as tremors, rigidity, and impaired mobility. Rasagiline also aids in reducing the duration of “off” periods characterized by decreased mobility or stiffness.

This medication belongs to the class of drugs called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). Its mechanism of action involves elevating the levels of specific neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.

Uses and Dosage

Rasagiline is administered orally in the form of tablets. The typical dosage involves taking it once daily, with or without food. Consume rasagiline at approximately the same time each day. Take rasagiline precisely as directed, without exceeding or reducing the prescribed dosage frequency.

The initial dose of rasagiline may be set at a low level by your doctor, which can be adjusted based on your body’s response to the medication.

Discontinuing the use of rasagiline should only be done under the guidance of your doctor. They will likely recommend a gradual reduction in dosage. Abruptly ceasing rasagiline intake can lead to withdrawal symptoms, such as fever, muscle stiffness, lack of coordination, or alterations in consciousness. Inform your doctor if you encounter any of these symptoms upon decreasing your rasagiline dose.
