Oprymea is a medicine used to treat the symptoms of the following diseases:
- Parkinson’s disease, a progressive brain disorder that causes shaking, slow movement and muscle stiffness. Oprymea can be used either on its own or in combination with levodopa (another medicine for Parkinson’s disease), at any stage of disease including the later stages when levodopa starts becoming less effective;
- moderate to severe restless-legs syndrome, a disorder where the patient has uncontrollable urges to move the limbs to stop uncomfortable, painful or odd sensations in the body, usually at night. Oprymea is used when a specific cause for the disorder cannot be identified.
Oprymea contains the active substance pramipexole.
Oprymea is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Oprymea contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Sifrol (also known as Mirapexin).
