What is Requip?

Requip is the brand name for the prescription drug ropinirole, which is used to treat Parkinson's disease. Requip is also used to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS).

Requip is a dopamine agonist, which means it works by increasing levels of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps to control movement and coordination. Parkinson's disease occurs when there is a deficiency of dopamine in the brain.

Requip is available in tablet and extended-release tablet form. It is usually taken three times a day with meals. The extended-release tablets are taken once a day, at bedtime.
