What Rilutek is and what it is used for

What RILUTEK is The active substance in RILUTEK is riluzole which acts on the nervous system. What RILUTEK is used for RILUTEK is used in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a form of motor neurone disease where attacks of the nerve cells responsible for sending instructions to the muscles lead to weakness, muscle waste and paralysis.

RILUTEK stops the release of glutamate and this may help in preventing the nerve cells being damaged. Please consult your doctor for more information about ALS and the reason why this medicine has been prescribed for you
