What is Riluzole?

Riluzole is a medication approved for the treatment of motor neurone disease (MND) in some countries.

Riluzole works by modulating the levels of certain chemicals in the brain, potentially slowing down the progression of the disease and prolonging the time before a person needs ventilation support.

It is essential to consult a healthcare professional for specific information about its use and availability in your region.
