Permax Description

Permax or generic Pergolide may be prescribed to treat Parkinson’s disease, which is characterized by a decrease level of dopamine in certain areas of the brain. The progressive loss of brain cells (neurons) in the dopamine producing part of the brain causes people to lose control of their muscles. The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include resting tremor, stiffness and rigidity of the muscles, problems with balance, and slowness of movement (bradykinesia). The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Permax Can Decrease Your Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

Permax is a type of medicine that is classified as an ergot-derived dopamine agonist and it works by mimicking the activity of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical known as a neurotransmitter which is present in the brain and nervous system and is involved in transmitting messages between nerves. These messages allow the normal functioning of the body. The neurotransmitter dopamine is known to be reduced or absent in the brains of people with Parkinson's disease, and this is thought to be the cause of the disease symptoms. By increasing dopamine levels in your brain, the symptoms of PD are reduced.

Information and Some Symptoms Associated with PD

Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressing disease of the nervous system. The onset of symptoms is slow and may go on for several years. The first indication may be a barely noticeable tremor in one hand or a lack of facial expression. Other symptoms may include decreased arm swing, tiredness, changes in speech, pain, trouble sleeping and anxiety or depression. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease; the aim of treatment is to reduce the symptoms and problems associated with Parkinson's disease and to improve your ability to do normal everyday tasks.

Permax or generic Pergolide can be taken by itself or in conjunction with Levodopa to treat Parkinson's disease, and is particularly useful in people for whom Levodopa alone is no longer providing adequate control of symptoms.

Before Permax is Prescribed

Before beginning treatment with Permax, you should advise your doctor if you have a history of heart or kidney problems, irregular heartbeat, lung problems, low blood pressure, or hallucinations. You should also provide a complete list of Rx drugs and over the counter medications you are taking so that your doctor can determine whether it is safe for you to take Permax. You should not discontinue treatment with Permax without consulting with your physician first.

Permax Precautions

Permax can cause a drop in blood pressure that may cause dizziness or fainting when you first start treatment. To minimize these side effects the dose of Permax is increased slowly, usually over three to four weeks. All medications should be stored out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
