AMANTADINE HCL 100MG CAPSULES 56 PACK was developed as an antiviral medication but also is useful in the treatment of chronic pain. It works by partially blocking a receptor within the central nervous system that is associated with pain pathways.
It works best when combined with other pain relievers such as NSAIDs, gabapentin, and/or tramadol. Generally well-tolerated, but may cause gastrointestinal effects (diarrhea) or some agitation, both of which tend to resolve as the pet adjusts to the medication.
Use with caution and decrease dose in patients with liver or kidney dysfunction, congestive heart failure, and seizure disorders.
Note: AMANTADINE HCL 100MG CAPSULES 56 PACK is a prescription-based medication and will be sent once a valid written veterinary prescription is received.
