Agilect (Azilect / Rasagiline)
30 x 1mg$ 184.99
 
Rasagiline brand name Agilect / Azilect is a new medication used to treat Parkinson’s disease either as monotherapy (by itself) or in addition to levodopa therapy. Rasagiline (Agilect / Azilect) promotes increased and sustained levels of dopamine by selectively inhibiting an enzyme, monoamine oxidase-B. Agilect is also likely to act beneficially through its ability to act as an anti-oxidant and an anti-apoptotic agent
Dosage
Typically dosages for dementia are 1 mg. daily, maximum 2 mg. daily, although persons using it for preventative measures may want to consider 0.25 mg. to 0.5 mg. (dependant upon need). It is known that at dosages greater than 2 mg. daily Agilect can also become a MAO-A inhibitor and therefore will interfere more readily with other drugs such as SSRI anti-depressants etc. Unless under the guidance of a health professional, the concurrent use of any other MAO inhibiting products, such as Deprenyl, Gerovital, St. John’s Wort, as well as other anti-depressants, particularly SSRI’s such as Paxil and Prozac etc., should be avoided.
Safety
The effect of a long-term regimen of Agilect on human lifespan is unknown, yet since Deprenyl has increased both life-expectancy and maximum lifespan in animal studies, it is possible, and that Agilect’s metabolic profile may have similar advantages for antiaging. For those with Parkinson’s disease, particularly who are undergoing a multi-approach therapy, Agilect may well be the drug of choice. Persons taking prescription medication and pregnant or lactating women should consult a physician before using this product. Long-term use of this product should be supervised and monitored by a health care professional.
