Requip (Ropinirole)and/or alternatives
Basic Information On Requip
Requip is indicated for treatment of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). PD is a disease, which affects the central nervous system. The characteristics of PD are degeneration of motor functions (walking, moving arms or neck, eye-hand coordination etc.) and speaking may become progressively slower and defunct. Rigidity of facial muscles and drooling are the other symptoms, very noticeable with this disease. PD is normally caused by a drop in dopamine production in the brain. Noticeable symptoms of the Restless Legs Syndrome, also called Ekbom Syndrome are: compulsive shaking or moving the legs, which is followed by discomfort or disagreeable sensations.
Surprisingly, movement generally ameliorates these symptoms, while rest exacerbates them! Sleeping may also become difficult in some cases. Requip drug increases dopamine production in the brain and thereby controls the disease.
Precautions/ Side Effects For Requip
Brand or generic Requip (ropinirole) is a dopamine agonist. To put it simply, the chemical binds itself to the protein molecules (receptors) in the nerve- cells that produce dopamine and increases dopamine generation. Dopamine in turn reduces the symptoms. Exercise care, when getting up from a lying down or sitting position, to avoid falling. Syncope, or Orthostatic hypotension, may affect you, when taking dopamine enhancers. Discuss certain body and life-style conditions like hepatic impairment, pregnancy, breast-feeding and other medication (CYP1A2 inhibitors, in particular) with your doctor, before starting this therapy.
Brand or generic Requip/ropinirole may cause side effects like, dizziness, nausea, dyskinesia or somnolence. Be vigilant while driving or operating moving machinery, because you may suddenly feel sleepy when taking this medicine. Taking Requip with food may ameliorate nausea. Check if you notice hallucinations, confusion, urinary tract infections abdominal pain, pharyngitis, or abnormal vision. These adverse reactions have been reported in rare cases. The adverse reactions vary, depending on whether you have been prescribed Requip for early Parkinson’s disease or its advanced stage and along with L-Dopa or without it. Proper dosage management would mitigate the reactions. Follow the medical advice.
Requip is to be started with 0.25 mg dosage and with gradual increase in dosage. Take the drug, one to three hours before bedtime. The titration (concentration) of the drug in the body has to be increased gradually. To facilitate this, you will get a kit when you buy Requip. Obtain regular medical advice regarding the usage of this kit and strictly follow the dosage. If you are restarting the therapy after discontinuing it for a long time, for any reason, re-titration will be necessary. Avoid over dosage (likely because of impaired memory). Follow the prescription carefully.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
