AMANTADINE contains a class of medication called dopamine agonist, consisting of amantadine, used to treat Parkinson's disease symptoms. It plays a vital role in treating symptoms such as difficulty moving, muscle stiffness, and tremors. Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder that causes movement, muscle control, balance, and other similar conditions. In addition to this, it also prevents symptoms of influenza (a viral infection).
AMANTADINE contains amantadine (dopamine agonist), which is an anti-Parkinson's drug. It helps treat Parkinson's disease by increasing dopamine (a chemical) level in the brain, responsible for improving body movement coordination. Thus, it effectively helps in performing daily functions in a better way and improving quality of life. Men are more likely to develop Parkinson's disease.
AMANTADINE is taken with or without food in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose you are given will depend on your condition and how you respond to AMANTADINE. In some cases, you may experience dry mouth, constipation, balance disorder (loss of balance), blurred vision, insomnia (difficulty sleeping), peripheral oedema. Most of these side effects of AMANTADINE are temporary, do not require medical attention, and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Consume only if the doctor prescribes you. Never encourage self-medication or suggest your medicine to someone else. You should not take AMANTADINE if you are allergic to amandine or any of its ingredients, levocetirizine, or have severe liver or kidney problems, have epilepsy. Check with your doctor if you're pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or taking any other prescribed or non-prescribed medicines. Also, AMANTADINE does not stop AMANTADINE abruptly as it may lead to severe side-effects. Inform your doctor, and he might lower your dose gradually.
