Drug Info for neupro

Rotigotine transdermal patches are used to treat the signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD; a disorder of the nervous system that causes difficulties with movement, muscle control, and balance) including shaking of parts of the body, stiffness, slowed movements, and problems with balance. Rotigotine transdermal patches are also used to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS or Ekbom syndrome; a condition that causes discomfort in the legs and a strong urge to move the legs, especially at night and when sitting or lying down). Rotigotine 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.

Neupro is used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. There is not a Neupro generic drug currently available on the market. On average Neupro is priced at about $657 for a supply of 30, 1 mg/24 hr extended-release transdermal film. Luckily, you can use our OptionRx savings offer to receive a Neupro discount of up to 80% off the retail price at participating pharmacies near you.

  • Absorbed through the skin

Transdermal routeStore the patches at room temperature in a closed container, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.

Missed dose: Transdermal routeIf you forget to wear or change a patch, put one on as soon as you can. If it is almost time to put on your next patch, wait until then to apply a new patch and skip the one you missed. Do not apply extra patches to make up for a missed dose.

If the patch comes off, stick it back on. You can use medical tape to keep the edges taped down, if needed. If the patch comes off and you cannot find it, put on a new patch. Continue to change patches on your regular schedule.

Transdermal routeYour doctor will tell you how many patches to use, where to apply them, and how often to apply them. Do not use more patches or apply them more often than your doctor tells you to. Try to change the patch at the same time each day.

Read and follow the patient instructions that come with this medicine. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

Transdermal routeWash your hands with soap and water before and after applying a patch.

Transdermal routeLeave the patch in its sealed wrapper until you are ready to put it on. Tear the wrapper open carefully. NEVER CUT the wrapper or the patch with scissors. Do not use any patch that has been cut by accident. Remove the protective liner, and put the patch on right away after you open the package.

Press the patch firmly in place with the palm of your hand for about 30 seconds. Make sure there is good contact with your skin, especially around the edges of the patch.

Transdermal routeThe patient instructions will show the body areas where you can wear the patch. When putting on each new patch, choose a different place within these areas. Do not put the new patch on the same place you wore the last one. Be sure to remove the old patch before applying a new one. Do not put a new patch in the same place for at least 14 days.

Apply the patch to clean, dry skin on your stomach, thigh, hip, flank (side of the body between the ribs and the pelvis), shoulder, or upper arm that has very little or no hair. Do not put the patch over burns, cuts, irritated, or oily skin. Avoid putting the patch on skin folds, under a waistband, or on areas where it could be rubbed by tight clothing. If you need to put the patch on a hairy area, the area should be shaved at least 3 days before you apply the patch.

Do not put cream, lotion, ointment, oil, or powder on the skin area where the patch will be placed.

Transdermal routePut on a new patch if the old one has fallen off and cannot be reapplied.

After you remove the patch, wash the site with soap and water to remove any drug or adhesive. You may also use baby or mineral oil to remove any excess medicine. Do not use alcohol or other solvents (eg, nail polish remover) to avoid skin irritation.
