Apokyn

Drug Info for apokyn

Apomorphine injection is used to treat ''off'' episodes (times of difficulty moving, walking, and speaking that may happen as medication wears off or at random) in people with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD; a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance) who are taking other medications for their condition. Apomorphine injection is in a class of medications called dopamine agonists. It works by acting in place of dopamine, a natural substance produced in the brain that is needed to control movement.

Apokyn is a prescription drug that comes in the form of an injection. It is used to treat hypomobility or off episodes in patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease. Although Apokyn may improve your ability to control movements such as walking and talking during an off episode, it does not prevent an off episode from occuring.
