Product information

Neupro is used to treat restless legs syndrome. The treatment is a transdermal patch used to supply a regulated amount of the active ingredient rotigotine. The patches are placed directly on the skin for 24 hours.

Restless legs syndrome is a fairly common condition affecting the nervous system. Up to one in ten people in the UK are thought to be affected. Those diagnosed with the condition report unpleasant feelings in the calves, feet and thighs resulting in an overwhelming compulsion to move the legs. RLS can occur at any age and is not gender specific although females are twice as likely to develop it. RLS can be caused by an underlying medical condition such as kidney failure or anaemia, however, in many cases there are no obvious causes behind the symptoms. Reduced dopamine signalling in the brain is thought to contribute to the condition.

Those who have mild restless legs symptoms may not require treatment. Small lifestyle changes and trying certain relaxation techniques can sometimes be enough to ease the condition. When the painful sensation occurs you can try the following: exercises such as yoga or tai chi; going for a walk; taking a hot bath; massaging your legs or applying a hot or cold compress to the muscles. Not smoking, regular exercise and adopting a bedtime routine can also be of benefit. If you notice a pattern between certain stimulants and your RLS symptoms occurring then you should try and avoid them as much as possible.

RLS cannot be cured but it can be treated with dopamine agonists (boosters) such as Neupro. Neupro is often used to treat moderate to severe cases that do not have a known cause. Neupro transdermal patches use the active ingredient rotigotine which stimulates dopamine signalling in the brain. The link between dopamine levels and RLS is not fully understood. However, dopamine is a neurotransmitter which is used to help pass messages between nerves and thus keep the body functioning as normal. If RLS is not treated it can affect sleep.

Neupro is not a permanent treatment for restless legs syndrome and should not be prescribed for a longer period than six months. This is because it can become less effective over time. Furthermore, if you are experiencing restless legs syndrome for the first time, we recommend you see your GP in person.
