About PRAMIPEX 0.125MG TABLET

PRAMIPEX 0.125MG TABLET belongs to a group of antiparkinson agents or dopamine agonists used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and moderate to severe Willis-Ekbom disease (restless legs syndrome) in adults. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder in which the first signs are problems with movements. Willis-Ekbom disease is a condition which causes the uncontrollable urge to move the legs.

PRAMIPEX 0.125MG TABLET contains 'Pramipexole' that works by mimicking the action of dopamine (acting in place of dopamine), which is a natural substance found in the brain needed to control body movement. This triggers the nerve impulses in the brain that control the body movements.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
