Requip XL (ropinirole hydrochloride) Indications

Requip XL, generic name of ropinirole hydrochloride, is prescribed to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. This medication helps improve motor function and reduce the tremors, stiffness, and slowness of movement associated with the condition.

Ropinirole works by acting as a dopamine agonist, stimulating dopamine receptors in the brain, which helps compensate for the loss of dopamine-producing cells in Parkinson’s disease. By compensating for the reduced dopamine levels, the motor function of individuals with Parkinson’s disease can be improved.

Note that Requip XL should be used under the guidance and prescription of a qualified healthcare professional.


Requip XL (ropinirole hydrochloride) Uses and Dosage

Read the patient information as it provides detailed information about the medication and its indications. In addition, this information will help you understand what to expect during treatment with ropinirole.

The starting dose of ropinirole is 2 mg once daily, the prescriber may start with a lower dose in some cases. The strength is gradually increased based on the individual’s response and tolerance to the medication—this includes increasing the dose by 2 mg per day at weekly intervals.

The maintenance dose for most patients with Parkinson’s disease ranges from 4-8 mg daily taken as a single dose with or without food. The prescriber may increase the dose up to 24 mg per day (maximum), yet doses greater than 24 mg daily are not recommended.

Ropinirole tablets should be swallowed whole with water and should not be crushed, chewed, or split. The extended-release mechanism may be compromised if the tablets are not swallowed whole. The specific timing of the dose may vary depending on the individual’s overall condition.

Take ropinirole for as long as it is prescribed. Abruptly discontinuing the medication can lead to withdrawal symptoms or a worsening of the underlying condition.
