Azilect (rasagiline) is used on its own to treat early Parkinson’s Disease and can be combined with levodopa for the treatment of advanced Parkinson’s. Rasagiline is a monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) inhibitor. It works by increasing the levels of neurotransmitters like dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in the brain. Dosage The dosage and regime is set by the prescribing physician. The usual recommended dose in monotherapy is 1 mg once daily, or 0.5 mg when combined with levodopa. The dose may be increased to 1 mg once daily if the response is inadequate.

This text is for informational purposes only. Please consult with a doctor or pharmacist before using any medication.  Doctors prescribe rasagiline because they have judged that the benefits outweigh the risks of any side effects.

Mild side effects like drowsiness or dizziness, joint pain, abdominal pain, heartburn or nausea, or dry mouth may occur. 

People can reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness by getting up slowly from sitting or lying, especially when starting on Azilect.

Not all possible side effects can be listed here. If any of these or other unexpected side effects persist or worsen, consult a doctor or pharmacist.

Parkinson’s Disease typically starts with subtle symptoms that gradually worsen. The ones commonly observed are:

  • Tremors which mainly start in one hand, known as “resting tremors.”
  • Bradykinesia (slowness of movement), which shows up as a reduction in spontaneous movement.
  • Persistent stiffness in the limbs and trunk (muscle rigidity).
  • Balance problems and increased risk of falls (postural instability).

Parkinson’s Disease is not curable and is usually progressive over time. It cannot be directly diagnosed by blood tests or imaging. Doctors try to make a clinical diagnosis primarily based on medical history, an assessment of motor skills, balance, coordination, and reflexes. A specialized imaging test (DaTscan) that looks at the dopamine system in the brain can distinguish between Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders.

  • What does the drug Azilect do?
    Azilect (generic name rasagiline) can be used in early Parkinson's Disease as a single drug therapy to slow the progression of symptoms. In more advanced Parkinson's disease, it can be used as an adjunct with levodopa to improve performance with motor skills and activities of daily living. The usual dose of Azilect is 1 mg per day, taken orally.
  • How does rasagiline make you feel?
    Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting may occur when rising from a lying or sitting position. Getting up slowly may help. Check with your doctor if this worsens.
  • Are bananas good for Parkinson's?
    Bananas are rich in magnesium which can help lessen muscle cramps and spasms, and can also reduce tremors.
  • Can you just stop taking rasagiline?
    Do not stop taking rasagiline without talking to the treating doctor. The doctor will decrease the dose gradually. If a person stops taking rasagiline suddenly, they may experience withdrawal symptoms such as a fever, muscle stiffness, unsteadiness, lack of coordination, or loss of consciousness.
  • Can you drink alcohol with Azilect?
    Drinking alcohol while taking Azilect is not recommended. Alcoholic drinks may contain a large amount of tyramine, which, when combined with Azilect, can cause a sudden and extreme rise in blood pressure.
