‘APOMORPHINE TREATMENT’ IN PARKINSON’S DISEASE

‘DO NOT FEEL HELPFUL’

There is no definitive treatment for Parkinson’s disease, which occurs in the deficiency of a substance called dopamine, which is necessary for the continuation of movement along with many functions in the brain. The disease can be controlled with some drugs that stimulate the release of dopamine. However, over time, the disease progresses and the effect of oral medications decreases.
The drug containing the active ingredient apomorphine is used in the treatment of patients with this condition.

* The brain needs a substance called dopamine in order to maintain our movements along with many functions. There is no definitive treatment for Parkinson’s disease, which occurs in the deficiency of this substance, but it can be controlled with some drugs that stimulate the release of dopamine. However, over time, the disease progresses and the effect of oral medications decreases. The drug containing the active ingredient apomorphine is used in the treatment of patients with this condition.

Apomorphine produced for such special cases is administered in two ways: subcutaneous injection and continuous infusion (pump). Medication is given to patients who are in severe condition and need continuous medication, with the help of a pump.

Before the application, a test application is carried out in the hospital. After the effective dose is found, the application starts immediately. No surgical intervention is performed. The patient and/or his/her relatives can easily perform the application.
