What are Azilect Tablets 0.5 mg for Parkinson's disease (rasagiline)?

Azilect tablets, containing the active ingredient rasagiline mesylate, are utilized in the management of Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the brain. The mechanism of action of Azilect revolves around its role as a selective and irreversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B), an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of dopamine in the brain. By inhibiting MAO-B, Azilect effectively increases the levels of dopamine available in the brain, thereby improving motor function and alleviating some of the symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease.

The therapeutic effectiveness of Azilect in Parkinson's disease has been demonstrated in clinical trials. When used as monotherapy in the early stages of the disease or as adjunct therapy in more advanced stages alongside levodopa, Azilect has shown the ability to reduce motor symptoms, such as tremors, bradykinesia, and rigidity. Additionally, some studies have suggested potential benefits in terms of reducing motor fluctuations and dyskinesias associated with long-term levodopa use.
