Uses
Symmetrel (Amantadine Hydrochloride) is a medicine that is widely used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease, and to prevent or treat influenza A. In addition to this, some patients have used it for shingles. When use for Parkinson's, the patient may be instructed to take it alongside other medicines. It works by causing an increased amount of dopamine to be released in the brain, which may help to provide relief from tremors and stiffness, while also improving the patient's movement.

This medicine can also work as an antiviral, and has been used to treat patients with influenza A, so as to prevent health complications, or to prevent infection in people considered to be at risk. Other possible uses for this drug have been researched, such as treating chronic fatigue in patients with multiple sclerosis, treating ADHD and depression.

Dosage and Administration
Symmetrel (Amantadine Hydrochloride) capsules must be taken exactly as directed by your doctor. Adults who are being treated for Parkinson's disease are usually instructed by their doctor to take 100mg twice per day. However, if required, the doctor may decide to adjust the dosage. Some older adults may only require a dosage of 100mg per day. The dosage for influenza (either treatment or prevention) and any other conditions may be different, and in all cases, the doctor will decide the right amount to take.

Side effects
Taking Symmetrel (Amantadine Hydrochloride) may trigger some side effects, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • Balance problems
  • Blurred eyesight
  • Dryness that affects the nose or mouth

Some side effects may be serious. You must see your doctor immediately if you experience tremors, hallucinations, depression, a sudden increase in weight, fever or any other side effects which have not been listed here.

Precautions
Patients treating Parkinson's disease should not suddenly cease treatment, as this may cause a worsening of symptoms. Your doctor will provide you with instructions on what to do in order to avoid this.

Do not drive or operate machinery if you feel dizzy or experience blurred after taking this medicine.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
