Ropinirole Micro Pellets MUPS
Ropinirole is a non-ergoline dopamine agonist.
It is used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Ropinerole is one of three medications approved by the FDA to treat Restless Legs Syndrome, the other two being pramipexole (Mirapex) and gabapentin encarbil (Horizant).
The discovery of the drug's utility in RLS has been used as a successful example of drug repurposing.
Ropinirole's patent expired in May 2008, and the drug is now available in generic form.
