Clarification Regarding Apomorphine Infusion Therapy for the Treatment of Parkinson ’s Disease (PD)

Apomorphine Infusion Therapy is an internationally approved therapy for a select group of patients suffering from advanced Parkinson’s Disease and who have been on oral therapy for a few years. The therapy is provided through an infusion and the benefits are usually for a short duration. A qualified neurologist must prescribe the drug after assessing the patient’s condition and the appropriateness of the therapy.

There are other, more conventional therapies, which are also available and commonly used in patients suffering from PD. These include oral drugs (usually prescribed over long term), which help slow-down the disease and surgical interventions such as Deep Brain Stimulation.

A neurologist usually evaluates a patient and prescribes the most appropriate therapy for a patient suffering from PD.
