What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Amantadine is a prescription medication for treatment of Parkinson’s disease, and it reduces the severity of dyskinesia (involuntary movement) in people with Parkinson’s. Other Amantadine uses are to treat influenza A virus or for drug-induced movement disorders. When used for Parkinson’s treatment Amantadine is usually used in combination with other medications and it works by increasing dopamine levels in the brain to allow the patient to have better control over their movement. This improvement may not be seen for several weeks after beginning to take the medication.

You can buy Amantadine with a doctor’s prescription at your local pharmacy, and the best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Take once or twice daily with or without food as directed by your doctor.

Dosage will be based on medical condition and response to therapy.

If taking Amantadine for viral infection it is important to finish the medication completely, even if infection appears to have cleared.


The active ingredient in Amantadine is Symmetrel.


Tell your doctor if you have any history of swelling of the arms or legs (peripheral edema), heart problems like congestive heart failure, blood pressure problems, kidney disease, liver disease, mental or mood conditions like depression or psychosis, seizures, or skin conditions like eczematoid dermatitis.

Amantadine uses will not be suitable for people with untreated closed-angle glaucoma. Your doctor may be able to prescribe an alternate medication.

Elderly people may be more prone to Amantadine side effects if they have decreased kidney function.

This medication can make you dizzy. Limit or avoid intoxicant substances while taking Amantadine and you may want to avoid driving or operating machinery if your medication makes you dizzy or light-headed.

Parkinson’s patients should limit physical exertion when taking Amantadine, due to the increased risk of falls.

Do not take this medication if you are pregnant or nursing unless your doctor advises you to do so.


There is the possibility of drug interactions risks between Amantadine and OTC medications that contain sodium bicarbonate. This is includes many stomach indigestion medications like Alka-Seltzer. Tell your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before receiving a prescription and proceeding to buy Amantadine.

Side Effects

Amantadine side effects are uncommon, but some users may experience blurred vision, nausea, stomach upset, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, constipation, nervousness, or sleeping difficulties. If Amantadine side effects are seen, discontinue use and speak to your doctor again about Parkinson’s treatment drug alternatives.
