Description of Rilutek

Rilutek is a benzothiazole, and its active ingredient is Riluzole. The drug is available in the form of oral tablets

Indications & Dosage of Rilutek

Your doctor may ask you to buy Rilutek in order to treat ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It works by reducing glutamate levels in your body. Rilutek is an amino acid which affects the nerves that send messages to the muscles from the brain. A high level of glutamate in patients with ALS can lead to damage of the nerve cells. Rilutek does not cure ALS, neither does it reverse muscle weakness or nerve damage. It can only delay the disease’s progression and prolong a patient’s life.

Your doctor will recommend you to take Rilutek 50mg twice a day at a gap of 12 hours. Higher doses do not improve the effects of the drug, but only increases risks of serious side effects.

You will be advised to take Rilutek one hour before or two hours after food. This is to avoid food-related reduction in bioavailability. Take the tablet with a full glass of water.

Side Effects & Interactions of Rilutek

You may commonly experience these symptoms during Rilutek treatment:

  • Spinning sensation, dizziness
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Drowsiness, weakness, tiredness
  • Tingling or numbness in or around the mouth
  • Mild nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach pain
  • Runny nose
  • Headache

These are mild side effects of Rilutek and subside on their own as your body adjusts to the medicine. However, it would be better to seek medical attention if any of these become intolerable.

  • Flu symptoms, body aches, chills, fever
  • Nausea, low fever, stomach pain, loss of appetite, clay-colored stools, dark urine, yellowing of the eyes or skin
