Is Anyone Taking The Drug Gocovri (New Amantadine), Any Help Or Side Effects

Went to the doctor yesterday and he put me on new Amantadine drug. I know I mentioned it way back when on this site but it was pretty new then and no one knew too much about it. How about now, anyone taking this? Bean

I take Amantadine 100mg 3/day plus Rasagiline 1/day and a Neupro 6mg patch. I do not take C Carbadopa/Levadopa because I had a severe allergic reaction to Sinemet after my second dose. My symptoms are fairly well controlled except for pain.

I have been on Gocovri since February of this year, it has helped me with my dyskinesia quite a bit. I started with 1 capsule for 1 week then 2 after that.. Well, 2 was too much dosage for me so I went back to 1 capsule before bed time. Too much made me hallucinate to where I was seeing water bubbling out of the floor, walls and every where or cobwebs dangling from the ceiling, it was weird.

Yes I tried it and liked it. It helps with the dyskinesia. Except my insurance does not cover it. I have received a couple of samples from my Dr. šŸ˜
