Amantadine Medication Information

Medication Information: Amantadine is used to treat Parkinson's. However, it is also prescribed for some other diseases. Parkinson's disease affects the way the brain coordinates with muscle movements. In this disease, a number of brain cells in the brain are damaged and die. These brain cells (dopaminergic neurons) transmit the message from the nerves to the spinal cord by producing a chemical called dopamine, which controls the movement of the body's muscles. When these brain cells are damaged, the amount of dopamine produced decreases. A combination of depletion of brain cells and low levels of dopamine in cells in this part of the brain slows down and abnormal nerve signals to muscles; These are the main symptoms of Parkinson's disease, namely stiffness, shaking (shaking) and slowness of movement.
