Amantadine 100mg

Hi I wonder if any of you have ever taken Amantadine 100mg.

I had read that this can help with fatigue my MS doctor prescribed it for me and I collected it yesterday going to start taking it today but am a little concerned about side effects.

Have you taken this before did it help and did you have any side effect

Thankyou

Laura

@lmagnan , all medications come with a horrendous list of side-effects. That’s to protect the manufacturer from being sued. Even headache tablets have a side-effect of headache listed!

Amantadine is the usual response to fatigue. It works for some, but not others.

I find it helpful if that helps!
Also, you don’t have to take if every day, just when you feel you need it?
I found it also helpful because it’s also an anti viral, originally developed to treat influenza, .. I’ve not had a cold, tum upset or anything, even when my children have been sick..co incidence perhaps?
Had no side effects whatsoever for me, but then I only take it when I think it’s necessary-
why don’t you try it and see if it helps? If not, then discontinue.
Good luck!

I have used this drug for years I have not felt any side effects. I have taken part in agood number of trials for ms and have had full blood screening. I have never been alerted to any problems. Amantadine has helped me manage my fatigue and I wouldn’t be without this medication. But it doesn’t work for all. Best of luck.

I take mine daily. Cant remember if it took a time to work. I have doubled up on a busy day which im not advising people to do but that indicates the effects are daily for me.

It didn’t work for Me, but hopefully you’ll react better. I suffered from nightmares and woke up a few times every night but side effects are different for anybody. And it wasn’t the reason I quit, I Just didn’t feel any difference.
