Dom Amantadine Uses

Amantadine belongs to the family of medications called antivirals. It is sometimes used to prevent and treat Influenza A infections, although its use has become limited due to viral resistance. It is believed to work by preventing the virus from reproducing. If used to prevent an infection, amantadine must be taken before exposure to the flu virus.

Amantadine also belongs to the family of medications called antiparkinsonians. It is also used to treat of Parkinson's Disease and for the short-term management of Parkinson-like symptoms caused by certain medications. The way it works is not clear, but it appears to help Parkinson's disease by increasing the levels of a chemical called dopamine in the brain. Not having enough dopamine in the brain is believed to be a cause of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Amantadine generally begins to work within 2 days.

Dom Amantadine may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Dom Amantadine may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Dom Amantadine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Dom Amantadine for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Dom Amantadine, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Dom Amantadine without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Dom Amantadine to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Dom Amantadine if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Dom Amantadine Dosage

The recommended adult dose of amantadine varies according to the condition being treated.

For treatment of Parkinson's disease, the recommended adult dose is 100 mg once daily to start. After 1 to 2 weeks, your doctor may recommend increasing the dose to 100 mg twice daily. The maximum daily dose is 400 mg in divided doses.

To treat symptoms similar to Parkinson's disease that are caused by medications, the recommended dose is the same as the dose used to treat Parkinson's disease. When used for this purpose, the maximum daily dose is 300 mg daily in divided doses.

For treatment and prevention of influenza A infections, the recommended dose for adults and children 10 years of age and older, weighing more than 40 kg, is 200 mg daily (in 1 dose or in 2 divided doses).

For children weighing less than 40 kg or those who are under 10 years old, the dosage is based on body weight. The recommended dose of amantadine is 5 mg per kilogram of body weight. The maximum dose for children 10 years and over is 200 mg daily. Children under 10 years of age should not be given more than 140 mg daily.

The appropriate dose is taken 2 or 3 times a day, as determined by your doctor.

  • To prevent influenza A infections, amantadine should be taken before or after contact with a person infected with influenza A, and continued for at least 10 days after contact with the virus.
  • To treat influenza A infections, amantadine should be taken within 24 to 48 hours of the start of flu symptoms, and continued for 24 to 48 hours after the symptoms disappear, up to 5 days.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Dom Amantadine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Dom Amantadine at room temperature in a dry place and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
