About Prexol-0.25mg Tablet 15's

Prexol-0.25mg Tablet 15's 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.

Prexol-0.25mg Tablet 15's 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.
