Requip

No Prescription

Requip is prescribed to patients who are suffering from Parkinson's disease or from RLS (restless legs syndrome).
Requip is prescribed to patients who are suffering from this medical condition as it is known to ease some of its symptoms (stiffness, muscle spasms, tremors, and poor muscular control).

Requip helps relieve the signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Caused by a deficit of dopamine (one of the brain's chief chemical messengers), this disorder is marked by progressive muscle stiffness, tremor, and fatigue. Requip works by stimulating dopamine receptors in the brain, thus promoting better, easier movement.

Requip can be taken with or without levodopa (usually prescribed as Sinemet), another drug prescribed to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
