What is Xadago used for?
Xadago is used along with other medications (such as levodopa carbidopa) to treat the stiffness, shakiness and difficulty moving associated with Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s Disease is caused by low levels of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. Xadago is a MAO inhibitor which works by increasing the levels of dopamine in the brain.
Always read and understand the medication guide provided with the product before you begin taking Xadago. When you buy Xadago online from Your Canada Drug Store, we always send the products in the manufacturer’s packaging.
Xadago is taken by mouth once daily or as directed by your doctor. Take Xadago everyday at the same time each day. Tell your doctor if the medication stops working well or if your condition worsens as this may be an indication that your therapy needs to be reviewed.
Do not stop taking this once your symptoms improve. Ceasing treatment early can cause symptoms to return and it may take time to manage them again. If you are instructed to end treatment by your doctor, you may need to taper your dose over time to avoid an adverse reaction called serotonin syndrome.
You may need to be screened for liver disease or other conditions before you start using Xadago. Your diet may need to change during treatment. Foods high in tyramine should be avoided.
The following drugs are known to interact with Xadago. This is not an exhaustive list of all possible drug interactions. It is important to disclose all your current medications, (including prescription medications and herbal products) with your doctor to prevent allergic reactions or adverse interactions. They may have to determine if the interaction is worth the benefit of using both drugs or if your therapeutic plan needs to be changed.
