AZILECT^® (rasagiline tablets) is indicated for the treatment of the signs and
symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) both as initial therapy alone and to be
added to levodopa later in the disease.

Patients should not take AZILECT^® if they are taking meperidine, tramadol,
methadone, propoxyphene, dextromethorphan, St. John’s Wort, cyclobenzaprine,
or other monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), as it could result in a serious
reaction. Patients should inform their physician if they are taking, or
planning to take, any prescription or over-the-counter drugs, especially
antidepressants and ciprofloxacin. Patients with moderate to severe liver
disease should not take AZILECT^®. Patients should not exceed a dose of 1 mg
per day of AZILECT^® in order to prevent a possibly dangerous increase in
blood pressure.

Side effects seen with AZILECT^® alone are flu syndrome, joint pain,
depression, and indigestion; and when taken with levodopa are uncontrolled
movements (dyskinesia), accidental injury, weight loss, low blood pressure
when standing, vomiting, anorexia, joint pain, abdominal pain, nausea,
constipation, dry mouth, rash, abnormal dreams, and fall.
