Amantadine (Symmetrel)

Amantadine is a prescription medication used to treat viral infections, Parkinson’s disease, and Parkinson-like symptoms.

It is classified as an anti-viral drug and a type of anti-Parkinson’s medication and is most commonly known by its brand name, Symmetrel.

Amantadine’s effectiveness in treating and preventing viral infections primarily focuses on influenza A. It functions by hindering the virus’s ability to replicate within the body, which can help reduce the severity and duration of flu symptoms.

However, it’s important to note that the effectiveness of amantadine against influenza A has diminished over the years due to the development of drug-resistant strains of the virus.

In the context of Parkinson’s disease and parkinsonism, amantadine helps manage symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, and movement difficulties. Amantadine is also used to control movement problems that may occur as side effects of other medications used to treat Parkinson’s disease.

Amantadine is available in various formulations, including immediate and extended-release capsules, tablets, and liquid forms, which allows for flexible dosing tailored to individual patient needs.

The capsules, tablets, and liquid form are usually taken once or twice a day while the extended-release capsules are usually taken once a day at bedtime and the extended-release tablets are usually taken once a day in the morning. 

The specific choice of formulation and dosing schedule is usually determined by a healthcare provider based on the patient’s condition, other medications they may be taking, and their overall health profile. Always follow the instructions provided by your doctor or pharmacist when taking amantadine.

In the United States, amantadine is available under the following brand names:

  • Symmetrel
  • Gocovri
  • Osmolex ER
  • Symadine 

Each of these brand names may have different formulations or release mechanisms, which can affect how the medication is taken and how it works in the body.

Common side effects associated with amantadine may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Decreased appetite
  • Dry mouth
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia

More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:

  • Hallucinations 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Behavior changes
  • Agitation or aggression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Fainting or blurred vision
  • Swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stiff muscles
  • Extreme drowsiness

The above lists of possible side effects associated with amantadine are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking amantadine, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
