Requip in a nutshell :

Requip is a highly popular brand for the treatment of  symptoms of Parkinson's disease (stiffness, tremors, poor muscle control and spasm). The drug is widely used for the treatment of  restless legs syndrome (RLS) as well. The drug is either used alone or with other drugs for the treatment of these symptoms. It is employed for the effective control  over  shakiness or movement problems. It has been also found effective in  decreasing the number of episodes of "on-off syndrome". Requip contains Ropinirole as its key therapeutic ingredient.

How Requip works inside body?

Ropinirole belongs to the  non ergot dopamine agonist class of drugs. The precise mode of action of Ropinirole is not properly understood but it is believed that the beneficial effects are correlated to the ability of the drug to stimulate the dopamine receptors (D3 and D2)in the striatum. It influences  the striatal  neuronal firing rates by activating the dopamine receptors in the same region.
