Generic Medication guide:
Purchasing medications online from the drugstores located outside the U.S. is a perfect solution to get the remedy you need much cheaper than at your local drugstores. Moreover, if you choose a reliable online pharmacy, you can also enjoy a free consultation of a qualified pharmacist and the possibility to purchase the medication without a prescription. It is ideal for people who need to take the medication on a daily basis and are obliged to go for a prescription every time they need a refill.

They are used all over the world and are priced significantly cheaper than the widely advertised brand medications available in the U.S.
If you want to buy Generic Symmetrel (Amantadine), you don’t even need a prescription from your doctor. The drug is sold over-the-counter in the majority of countries, so it is legal as long as you buy it online from a drugstore situated in one of those countries. But now, before you place your order, read our medication guide made on the basis of the most frequently asked questions about Generic Symmetrel. It will help you decide what dosage and medication you need, if, for example, this particular drug is contraindicated for you.
History of Generic Symmetrel (Amantadine) discovery and use
The medication was initially developed as an antiviral drug for Asian influenza. It was approved in 1966 by the FDA for the treatment of flue caused by influenza virus type A. In 1969, it was discovered that the drug is also effective as a medication to minimize Parkinson’s disease manifestations. Later that year, the Amantadine was approved also as an antiparkinsonian drug.
In 2005, during the pandemic of avian flu, it was reported that Chinese poultry farmers administered Amantadine to their birds. However, multiple studies show that the medication is ineffective in veterinary and can be even harmful. Moreover, some products for animals, such as a certain brand of dog treats, were even recalled from the market by the FDA in 2015 because of suspected contamination with Amantadine.

How does the medication act?
