Advice

Following a resubmission.

Rasagiline (Azilect) is not recommended within NHS Scotland for the treatment of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease as adjunct therapy (with levodopa) in patients with end of dose fluctuations.

Rasagiline reduces off-time in patients with Parkinson’s disease and end of dose fluctuations on levodopa, similar to reductions shown with the less effective of two currently marketed catechol-O-methyl transferase inhibitors. The economic case has not been demonstrated.
