You’re unique. And so is RYTARY.

Inside each RYTARY capsule is a unique combination of time-release beads.


Together, this may reduce the amount of “off” time you experience each day.

RYTARY works to keep medication levels steady.

Medications like IR CD/LD work for many people with Parkinson’s. But over time, people who take them may begin to experience “off” time, when their medication isn’t working to manage their symptoms.

However, when a clinical study compared the way RYTARY behaves in the body to other CD/LD medications, it found that RYTARY was able to keep LD levels steady for longer than those other medications.

When I told my doctor about how often I was experiencing ‘off’ time, we talked about switching to extended-release RYTARY. Our hope was that it would keep me on a more even keel, and it does do that for me.

Let RYTARY help the real you shine through.

In another clinical study, the effectiveness of RYTARY was compared to IR CD/LD in people experiencing motor fluctuations. In this study, RYTARY demonstrated:
reduction in “off” time during waking hours
  • 13.1% reduction vs 6.2% reduction with IR CD/LD
  • 2.2 hours vs 1 hour with IR CD/LD*
increase in “on” time without troublesome dyskinesia
  • 1.8 hours vs 0.8 hours with IR CD/LD*
Better movement control
  • Improved performance of motor functions and activities of daily living*
*These were secondary measures of the study.
I have more ‘on’ time with RYTARY. Parkinson’s doesn’t stop me from stretching and staying physically active as my doctor recommended.

Everyone’s dose of RYTARY will be a little different.

Everyone gets started on RYTARY one of two ways:
  • People who took IR CD/LD in the past will be prescribed a dose of RYTARY based on their old regimen—but the dose will be different.
  • People who are new to treatment will be prescribed a standard dose of RYTARY.
And while some people find that their first dose of RYTARY works well for them, others may need their dose to be adjusted. It’s a normal part of treatment, and it’s why RYTARY is available in 4 different capsule strengths—to help healthcare providers find the exact dose that’s right for each person.

Capsules may not be representative of actual size.


RYTARY was shown to have
a similar safety profile as IR CD/LD.

In a clinical study, the most common side effects occurring in at least 5% of people treated with RYTARY and at a higher rate than IR CD/LD were nausea and headache.
I wasn’t surprised when I had a little trouble with nausea at first, and a slight dose adjustment was needed. RYTARY definitely gives me more ‘on’ time, so it’s been a great choice for me.

If “off” time is getting in the way of your time,
RYTARY may be able to help.

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions below, ask your healthcare provider if RYTARY could be right for you.

  • Is it hard to predict how your day will go because of “off” time?
  • Is Parkinson’s getting in the way of making plans or doing everyday activities?
  • Could you benefit from a treatment option that lasts up to 4-5 hours?
