Eldepryl Medication Information

Eldepryl® (selegiline hydrochloride) is a prescription drug used to treat Parkinson's disease. It is approved for use in combination with carbidopa-levodopa medications such as Sinemet®, Sinemet® CR, or Parcopa®.
 
Eldepryl belongs to a class of medications called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). Available in the form of a capsule, the medicine is taken by mouth twice a day, at breakfast and lunch. Nausea, lightheadedness, and abdominal pain are some of the most common side effects.
 
Although many people tolerate it fairly well, Eldepryl is not suitable for everyone. Before using this medication for Parkinson's disease, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, let your healthcare provider know if you have problems such as kidney or liver disease.
