Trivastal, also known as piribedil, is primarily indicated for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It is an antiparkinsonian agent that helps manage the symptoms of this neurodegenerative disorder. 

Additionally, Trivastal is used for certain specific circulatory disorders of the lower limbs. It has also been found effective in improving cognition, memory, and focus in the elderly population

Trivastal works by acting as a D2 and D3 receptor agonist. This means it stimulates these dopamine receptors in the brain, which are crucial for various brain functions including movement and mood regulation. Trivastal also has 2-adrenergic antagonist properties.
