Why is this medication prescribed?

Ropinirole is used alone or with other medications to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD; a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance), including shaking of parts of the body, stiffness, slowed movements, and problems with balance. Ropinirole is also used to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS or Ekbom syndrome; a condition that causes discomfort in the legs and a strong urge to move the legs, especially at night and when sitting or lying down). Ropinirole is in a class of medications called dopamine agonists. It works by acting in place of dopamine, a natural substance in the brain that is needed to control movement.

How should this medicine be used?

Ropinirole comes as a tablet and an extended-release (long-acting) tablet to take by mouth. Ropinirole may be taken with food to prevent stomach upset. When ropinirole is used to treat Parkinson's disease, the regular tablet is usually taken three times a day and the extended-release tablet is taken once daily. When ropinirole is used to treat Restless Legs Syndrome, the regular tablet is usually taken once a day, 1 to 3 hours before bedtime. Ropinirole extended-release tablets are not used to treat Restless Legs Syndrome. Take ropinirole at around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take ropinirole exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Swallow the extended-release tablets whole; do not split, chew, or crush them.

Your doctor will start you on a low dose of ropinirole and gradually increase your dose to help control your symptoms. If you are taking ropinirole to treat Parkinson's disease, your doctor will probably not increase your dose more often than once a week. If you are taking ropinirole to treat Restless Legs Syndrome, your doctor will probably increase your dose after 2 days, again at the end of the first week, and then not more often than once a week. It may take several weeks before you reach a dose that works for you. If you are taking ropinirole to treat Restless Legs Syndrome, you may receive a starter kit that contains tablets of increasing doses to be taken during the first 2 weeks of your treatment. The dose of medication you will need depends on how well your body responds to the medication, and may be different than the doses contained in the kit. Your doctor will tell you how to use the kit and whether you should take all the tablets it contains. Follow your doctor's directions carefully.

Ropinirole controls the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and Restless Legs Syndrome but does not cure these conditions. Continue to take ropinirole even if you feel well. Do not stop taking ropinirole without talking to your doctor. If you are taking ropinirole and you suddenly stop taking the medication, you may experience fever, fast heartbeat, muscle stiffness, sweating, confusion, and other symptoms. If your doctor asks you to stop taking ropinirole, your doctor will probably decrease your dose gradually, over 7 days.

If you stop taking ropinirole for any reason, do not start to take the medication again without talking to your doctor. Your doctor will probably want to increase your dose again gradually.

Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the manufacturer's information for the patient.

What special precautions should I follow?

 

Before taking ropinirole,

  • tell your      doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to ropinirole, any other      medications, or any of the ingredients in ropinirole tablets or      extended-release tablets. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for a list of      ingredients in ropinirole regular or extended-release tablets.
  • tell your      doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications,      vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or      plan to take. Be sure to mention any of the following: antidepressants      ('mood elevators'); antipsychotics (medications for mental illness);      cimetidine (Tagamet, Tagamet HB); fluoroquinolone antibiotics such as      ciprofloxacin (Cipro), and norfloxacin (Noroxin); fluvoxamine (Luvox);      hormone replacement therapy and hormonal contraceptives (birth control      pill, patches, rings, and injections); insulin; lansoprazole (Prevacid);      levodopa (in Sinemet, in Stalevo); medications for anxiety and seizures;      medications that cause drowsiness; metoclopramide (Reglan); mexiletine      (Mexitil); modafanil (Provigil); nafcillin; omeprazole (Prilosec,      Zegerid); sedatives; sleeping pills; and tranquilizers. Your doctor may      need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for      side effects. Be sure to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you stop taking      any medications while you are taking ropinirole.
  • tell your      doctor if you have ever had an urge to gamble that was difficult to      control and if you have or have ever had unexpected daytime sleepiness or      a sleep disorder other than restless legs syndrome; high or low blood      pressure; a psychotic disorder (mental illness that causes abnormal      thinking or perceptions); or heart, liver, or kidney disease.
  • tell your      doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are      breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking ropinirole, call your      doctor.
  • you should      know that ropinirole may make you drowsy or may cause you to suddenly fall      asleep during your regular daily activities. You might not feel drowsy or      have any other warning signs before you suddenly fall asleep. Do not drive      a car,operate machinery, work at heights, or participate in potentially      dangerous activities at the beginning of your treatment until you know how      the medication affects you. If you suddenly fall asleep while you are      doing something such as watching television, talking, eating, or riding in      a car, or if you become very drowsy, especially during the daytime, call      your doctor. Do not drive, work in high places, or operate machinery until      you talk to your doctor.
  • remember      that alcohol can add to the drowsiness caused by this medication. Tell      your doctor if you regularly drink alcoholic drinks.
  • tell your      doctor if you use tobacco products. Call your doctor if you start or stop      smoking during your treatment with ropinirole. Smoking may decrease the      effectiveness of this medication.
  • you should      know that some people who took medications such as ropinirole developed      gambling problems or other intense urges or behaviors that were compulsive      or unusual for them, such as increased sexual urges or behaviors. There is      not enough information to tell whether the people developed these problems      because they took the medication or for other reasons. Call your doctor if      you have an urge to gamble that is difficult to control, you have intense      urges, or you are unable to control your behavior. Tell your family      members about this risk so that they can call the doctor even if you do      not realize that your gambling or any other intense urges or unusual      behaviors have become a problem.
  • you should      know that ropinirole may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, or      sweating when you get up too quickly from a sitting or lying position.      This is more common when you first start taking ropinirole or with an      increase in the dose of ropinirole. To avoid this problem, get out of the      chair or bed slowly, resting your feet on the floor for a few minutes      before standing up.
