Selegiline for Parkinson's Disease

Selegiline (Selgin) is a popular treatment for Parkinsonís Disease. While Selegiline can help to reduce the progression of the disease, it isnít a cure for it. Parkinsonís Disease reduces the overall functions of the nervous system including balance and muscle control. Selegiline reduces the amount of Levodopa and Carbidopa that are responsible for these negative symptoms.

How Selegiline Works

Selegiline belongs to a group of medicines known as MAO-B Inhibitors. They reduces the amount of a Dopamine in the brain that is responsible for the movements of the body.

Selegiline Dosage and Administration

Selegiline is offered in a capsule form and it is taken twice per day, every day. Avoid consuming any food or drinks for 5 minutes before and after using this medication.

Missing doses can allow the Parkinsonís Disease to progress. It isnít recommended to take more than this dose as it increases side effects. Yet it wonít increase the ability to control this particular disease. Taking too much of Selegiline can also result in serious problems with your blood pressure.

Selegiline Precautions

Individuals that have high blood pressure will have to be very closely monitored when they use Selegiline. All efforts should be taken to help reduce that blood pressure reading including medications and lifestyle changes. The lowest possible dose of Selegiline will be given initially. It can take up to six weeks to see improvements from it. The doctor may determine the dose needs to be increased at that point. It can take several months to find the proper dose.

Selegiline Side Effects

There are some known side effects associated with the use of Selegiline. It is important to get up slowly to reduce the risk of dizziness. Take Selegiline with food to reduce the risk of nausea. Donít stop taking Selegiline without the consent of your doctor as it can result in stiff muscles and seizures.
