Introduction

DavaIndia Ropinirole 0.5mg Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and restless leg syndrome (an urge to move the legs usually accompanied or caused by uncomfortable and unpleasant leg sensations). It helps to treat excessive shaking by slowing down the body movements.

DavaIndia Ropinirole 0.5mg Tablet should be taken with food. However, take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. You should never skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to your doctor.

Some common side effects of this medicine include headache, fainting, vomiting, weakness, nausea, edema (swelling), abnormality of voluntary movements and dyspepsia (indigestion).

Inform your doctor if you develop any unusual changes in mood, an abnormally high sex drive, an urge to gamble or uncontrolled spending as these may prove very harmful.
