Reviews about Remantadine
Remantadine tablets, what are they taken from? it antiviral drugwhich inhibits the reproduction of the virus. It is a "long-liver" in the market of antiviral drugs - it has been used since 1975. Its prophylactic administration is effective in influenza epidemics in closed groups, as reported in many reviews. However, in recent years, most influenza A viruses (up to 50%) have become resistant to this drug, so it has lost its relevance. It is not effective for other respiratory viral diseases and the A / H1N1 virus, which causes pandemics, is resistant to it. In this connection, the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation does not recommend the use of remantadine in the pandemic period.
Virus susceptibility to class II drugs remains: oseltamivir, zanamivir, peramivir. Class III drugs (aprotinin, camostat) appeared recently and occupy a leading position in the treatment of influenza.
Reviews of Remantadine also contain its use for weight loss. This is based on the fact that one of the side effects of the drug is a decrease in appetite, up to anorexia. It should be noted that the indications for the use of Remantadine do not provide for its administration for this purpose. The presence of side effects, including kidney and liver damage, neuropsychiatric disorders (in 45.5% of cases), anemia does not justify its appointment in order to reduce weight. Agree that a high price you can pay for lost kilograms.
