General Information

Jumex , also known as deprenyl, eldepryl works by helping to conserve the amount of dopamine available by preventing the dopamine from being destroyed. Jumex provides selective protection against the age-related degeneration of the dopaminergic nervous system. Jumex can interact with other medications such as Demerol, and many depression medications. Jumex has not been studied in pregnant women. Jumex is used to treat Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is associated with low levels of a chemical called dopamine in your brain. The exact way that eldepryl works is unknown. Jumex is the first selective inhibitor of MAO-B ever discovered, it is the only one used in clinical practice, and it remains the scientific reference standard for B-type inhibition after more than 40 years.
