Clinical StudiesStudies have shown that ropinirole XL can help treat both early and advanced forms of Parkinson's disease. This medication was studied in people with early Parkinson's disease who were not yet taking levodopa (one of the most commonly used medications for Parkinson's) and in people with advanced Parkinson's disease who had been taking levodopa for quite some time. In both cases, ropinirole XL helped improve the symptoms of Parkinson's.
