Symmetrel Medication Information

Symmetrel® (amantadine hydrochloride) is a prescription drug approved for the following uses:
 
  • Prevention and treatment of certain types of the flu
  • Treatment of Parkinson's disease and other similar conditions
  • Treatment of certain side effects of other medications, known as "extrapyramidal" side effects (such as movement disorders caused by antipsychotic medications).
 
The medication is usually taken once or twice a day, with or without food. In clinical studies, the most common side effects included nausea, dizziness, and insomnia.
 
To help ensure a safe treatment process with Symmetrel, your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history, including any other conditions you may have and if you are taking any other medications (including vitamins or supplements). This will help him or her decide if this product is right for you.
