Zelapar Drug Information
Zelapar is used with levodopa/carbidopa to treat movement disorders caused by Parkinson's disease. It does not cure Parkinson's disease, but it may improve shakiness (tremor), muscle stiffness, and sudden switching between normal movement and stiffness ("on-off" problems). It may improve your range of motion and ability to walk, dress, and exercise. Selegiline is an enzyme blocker (MAO inhibitor) that works by slowing the breakdown of certain natural substances in the brain (neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin).
How to Use Zelapar
Take Zelapar by dissolving the tablet on the tongue, usually once a day in the morning or as directed by your doctor. Do not swallow the tablet or the dissolved medication with saliva or water. It should be absorbed through the lining of the mouth. To prevent accidentally swallowing any of the medication, do not eat or drink anything for at least 5 minutes before or after using Zelapar. Dry your hands before peeling back the foil on the blister pack to carefully remove a tablet. Do not push the tablet through the foil. Immediately place the tablet on the tongue and allow it to dissolve completely. Do not crush, split, or break the tablet before taking it. Do not remove the tablet from the blister pack until just before taking. Taking selegiline late in the day may cause trouble sleeping. Dosage of Zelapar is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Your doctor may change your dose to find the best dose for you.

Talk with your doctor if the medication stops working well or if your condition worsens.
