Xadago (Safinamide Methansulfonate) is a prescription medication that is used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is thought to be caused by too little dopamine in the brain. Safinamide belongs to a class of drugs known as MAO inhibitors. It works by increasing the levels of certain natural substances such as dopamine in the brain. Xadago can help improve symptoms such as shakiness, stiffness, and difficulty moving.
