Neupro

Rotigotine (Neupro) is an expensive drug used to control the signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease or restless legs syndrome. This drug is less popular than comparable drugs. There are currently no generic alternatives to Neupro. It is covered by more Medicare and insurance plans, but some pharmacy coupons or cash prices may be lower. Compare dopamine agonists.
