Drug Mode of Action ::  

Ropinirole is a non-ergot dopamine D2-agonist with similar actions to those of bromocriptine. It is used in the management of Parkinson’s disease, either alone or as an adjunct to levodopa.

Drug Interactions ::

Inhibitors of CYP1A2 e.g. cimetidine, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, fluvoxamine, isoniazid, ritonavir and zileuton may increase serum concentrations of ropinirole. Oestrogens and tobacco smoking may decrease clearance of ropinirole. Efficacy may be reduced by dopamine antagonists such as phenothiazines and metoclopramide.
