What is Amantadine?
Amantadine (brand names: Symmetrel®, Gocovri®, Osmolex ER®, Endantadine®) is an antiviral medication that also has some pain control effects. Its use in small animals is primarily for the treatment of pain, and it is often paired with other pain medications such as NSAIDs, opioids, or gabapentin.
Its use in cats and dogs to treat pain is ‘off label’ or ‘extra label’. Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully as their directions may be significantly different from those on the label.
