What is Eldepryl?
Eldepryl (selegiline) prevents the breakdown of a chemical in your brain called dopamine. Low levels of dopamine are associated with Parkinson's disease. Eldepryl capsules are used together with levodopa and carbidopa to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
How should Eldepryl be consumed?
Take Eldepryl exactly as it was prescribed for you. All directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results.
What should be avoided while taking Eldepryl?

You may fall asleep suddenly, even after feeling alert. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.
What other drugs will affect Eldepryl?
Many drugs can interact with selegiline, and some drugs should not be used together.
