Indications & Dosage of Eldepryl

Eldepryl is used for treating symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease, such as muscle stiffness, tremors, on-off problems, and loss of normal movements. By treating these symptoms, the medicine improves your motion range, as well as enhances your ability to exercise, dress and walk. Your doctor may advise you to take some other drugs such as carbidopa and levodopa too along with Eldepryl. The drug works by preventing breakdown of dopamine in the patient’s brain, a lack of which is associated with Parkinson’s disease.

Usually, you will be recommended to take one Eldepryl 5mg capsule at breakfast and one at lunch. This totals to Eldepryl 10mg per day. However, the dosage may vary, depending on your personal requirements and medical condition.
