How do amantadine inhibit RNA replication?
Excuse me, but I would like to know the way by which amantadine inhibit the replication of Influenza A minus-RNA virus. Please help!
Asked by Britt Allery 6 months ago.
The mechanism by which amantadine (Symmetrel) exerts its antiviral activity is not clearly understood. It appears to mainly prevent the release of infectious viral nucleic acid into the host cell by interfering with the function of the transmembrane domain of the viral M2 protein. In certain cases, amantadine is also known to prevent virus assembly during virus replication. Answered by Von Stallins 6 months ago.
The Flu for 1 week and wont go away?
Sudafed i finished all 18 tablets and also ive been taken motrin and excedrin which didnt help amantadine to take 2 times a day for 7 days 3 tablets left
Asked by Yun Quinley 6 months ago.
Thanks for emailing me about the edits you made. Symmetrel (amantadine) treats influenza type A. Although type A is the most common, maybe yours is a type B or C. Still, the virus is self-limited and will resolve in time....if this is flu. But if it's not the flu, what else could it be? Keeping in mind the symptoms you've listed, sinusitis and allergy-related sinusitis come to mind. Drainage from sinuses irritates the throat, post-nasal drip from allergies also irritates the throat. Sinusitis can cause nasal congestion and eye pain. Sinusitis is either bacterial or viral. Antivirals like Symmetrel won't treat a bacterial infection. Ask for a referral to an ENT to rule out undiagnosed sinusitis. Answered by Florencio Wiens 6 months ago.

Multiple sclerosis? Does everyone have to take medication? I am 16. I dont know if i have MS, but i have an "undiagnosed autoimmune disease." I have the symptoms, but like most know the symptoms mirror other disease. I Was wondering does everyone with MS take medications that they inject themselves. I know i shouldn't worry till i am diagnosed but i was just curious. One doctor thought maybe lupus, but i havent seen a specialist. My new doctor has to get my blood work b4 she can refer me. i had a ct yeasturday, thank goodness i didnt get a phone call today, i guess taht is a good things. so if anyone could please help me out that would be great. also i was wondering how would ms affect me in the future if i do have it. what will it do to my body. i dont know like ive said if it is ms but if it is i think it is affecting my hands? doesthat happen? it has been getting worse, they hurt everyday and i can harding move them oor use them, my legs (thought to be shin splits) hurt sooo bad after i walk fast for a short distance or if i walk a long period of time, i can barley lift them after and they hurt sooooo bad... Answered by Cinderella Jefcoat 6 months ago.
Until and unless you're diagnosed with MS, this answer to you is theoretical, okay? And, Rita, thanks for e-mailing me about the MS questions you posted. Not all MS meds are injected. Many used to treat the effects of MS can be taken orally - Symmetrel (for fatigue), baclofen (for muscle stiffness, spasms and tremors), Detrol (for urinary difficulty), Tylenol (for pain) and Prozac (for depression). You would find these helpful. No need to suffer more than you can help. It would have to determined which type of MS you have. There's benign, relapsing-remitting, primary progressive, secondary progressive and progressive-relapsing. You should know what to expect. For relapsing-remitting MS, Avonex, Betaseron, Copaxone and Rebif are generally self-injected either under the skin or into muscle but not everyday. Betaseron is every other day. Rebif is 3 times a week. Avonex is weekly. (One medication, Tysabri, is injected weekly at your doctor's office.) These 4 self-injected meds aren't really effective for other types of MS. Corticosteroids (Methylprednisolone, prednisone and Betamethasone) are used to suppress the immune system and thus cotrol the symptoms. As your symptoms are worsening, I would advise medication but I would also advise physical & occupational therapy to maintain function and independence for as long as possible. But whether or not you take meds is your decision and you have the right to refuse any and all forms of treatment. So, no, you don't HAVE to take medication. Most people do. And they inject the injectables themselves. They learn how and they get over any squeamishness about it. And how grand to be able to help yourself. It's hard to predict the course of MS although those people who have early symptoms of tremor, poor coordination, difficulty in walking, or who have frequent attacks with incomplete recoveries, early development of neurological abnormalities, or more lesions on MRI early on, tend to have a more progressive disease course. There can be intention tremors of the hands. I think it's premature to talk about wheelchairs or hospital beds. And as I said, it's hard to predict the course of MS. But, my friend, you have yet to find out just what the problem is. I'm truly sorry about what's happening to you and I hope you get some answers about it soon. Please try to keep up your spirits. I'll keep you in my prayers. Answered by Florrie Leonberger 6 months ago.
Please don't worry too much, I've had MS for more than 27 years and I'm not in a wheel chair and I don't plan in using it any time soon. To tell you the truth I was not as I am today, thank to my husband we found a natural product that has helped me a lot, its name is "alfa PXP forte" and is from a company called "ENZACTA". We already bought a membership so we can get it at a better price. It has change my life. You should check it out.

Yea, unfortunately, you do have to take medication for MS. It is a very serious condition also it is very hard to diagnose. You're a very young individual, it must either be a genetic. With MS you are constantly in pain. It can get very painful at times, which is why some MD's will place their patients on regular pain medication that are in the control narcotic catagory. With your symptoms it is very possible, but of course you should consult your doctor. I hope it is not MS, you can manage life with it, but only prepare yourself for it if your doctor diagnose you with it. One of the major celebrity with MS is Montel Williams, you should read is blog on his website, very inspiring. Answered by Luise Below 6 months ago.

from what i know of this there is no way to reverse extrapyramidal side effects. once the damage is done it is permanent which is why the patient has to sign the paperwork as to not hold the prescriber or facility responsible. check out WebMD, there might be more info there and you can be sure it is accurate.

I have been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome (a high functioning part in the Autism Spectrum) in partial remission by a very reputable doctor in NY state. Doctors have also told me that ADHD/ADD are usually apparent in people with Aspergers. I would like to know what substances like vitamins/minerals, foods/drinks (including ingredients,) medications, or drugs that would particularly benefit my situation, or would adversely affect me more so than "normal," healthy people. I would also like to know of any kind of therapy (or even stuff i can do without seeing a Dr. or therapist) that would help project me to a higher and/or more balanced functionality. Spiritual suggestions are welcomed as well, besides plainly going to church and etc. Like would coffee, marijuana, candy/sugar, or alcohol adversely affect me more than a regular, healthy person, or perhaps in moderation provide benefits? are there any specific alcohols, foods, or hardcore drugs that "I" should specifically look out for? for example: one Dr. told me that certain ADHD meds could basically "scramble" my mind because i have Aspergers.. (by a doctor who has specialties in autism.) if you're going to suggest music as an activity i will tell you that i am already musically active. i am a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer. i am also currently attending college for an Associates in Music and plan to transfer for a Bachelors. i am frequently on social networking sites as well. P.S. i am never going to touch stuff like heroin, meth, crack/cocaine, or crocodile. i will tell you that i have experimented with stuff such as xanax, percocet, artane/cogentin/symmetrel, psychoactive mushrooms, valium, and more often (not every day or even every week) marijuana. none of this has greatly hindered me and i currently have all A's in college. i also graduated from high school in NY with a regents diploma, and yes i had an IEP because it took me a little extra time to get stuff done.

Best and latest medical tretment of parkinson,?
drug names of parkinson disease
Asked by Nathaniel Droggitis 6 months ago.
The Food and Drug Administration approved Azilect (rasagiline), a new molecular entity, for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The drug is a monoamine oxidase type--B (MAO-B) inhibitor that blocks the breakdown of dopamine, a chemical that sends information to the parts of the brain that control movement and coordination. Another New Treatment On May 9, 2007, FDA announced the approval of Neupro (rotigotine transdermal system), a skin patch designed to treat symptoms of early Parkinson's disease. Rotigotine is a drug not previously approved in the United States. Neupro, manufactured by Schwarz Bioscience of Research Triangle Park, N.C., is the first transdermal patch approved for the treatment of symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Rotigotine is a member of the dopamine agonist class of drugs and is delivered continuously through the skin (transdermal) using a silicone-based patch that is replaced every 24 hours. A dopamine agonist works by activating dopamine receptors in the body, mimicking the effect of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Other Alternatives: A Brain "Pacemaker" FDA approved an important tool for controlling Parkinson's tremors. The Activa Tremor Control Therapy consists of a wire surgically implanted deep within the brain and connected to a pulse generator, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, implanted near the collarbone. Whenever a tremor begins, patients can activate the device by passing a hand-held magnet over the generator. The system delivers a mild electrical stimulation that blocks the dysfunctional brain signals that cause tremor. Effects are often dramatic. "Before the implant, patients can't raise a glass of water or a spoonful of food to their mouths without spilling it or striking themselves in the face," says William Koller, M.D., neurology chairman at Kansas University Medical Center. "Within hours, these same patients are sipping tea from a cup and eating peas with a fork, with no signs of their disability." Surgery Options A brain operation shown to be helpful for many Parkinson's patients, especially those in late stages of the disease, is called pallidotomy. Doctors are not sure why the procedure works, but an October 1997 report in the New England Journal of Medicine stated that half of the patients in a pallidotomy study at Toronto Hospital, who before the surgery needed help in eating, dressing, and personal hygiene, were able to resume these activities independently. The study cautioned, however, that some of the surgery's effects diminished after two years and that the long-term effectiveness of the procedure still is unknown.
