About PRAMIROL SR 0.26MG TABLET

PRAMIROL SR 0.26MG 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.

PRAMIROL SR 0.26MG 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.

Medicinal Benefits

PRAMIROL SR 0.26MG TABLET belongs to a group of antiparkinson agents called dopamine agonists used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and moderate to severe Willis-Ekbom disease (restless legs syndrome) in adults.
