What is rimantadine?

Flumadine 100 mg Tab
Drug Name: RIMANTADINE-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Flumadine
Uses: Rimantadine is used to prevent or treat a certain type of flu virus (influenza A). If you have been infected with the flu, this medication may help make your symptoms less severe and shorten the time it will take you to get better. Taking rimantadine if you have been or will be exposed to the flu may help to prevent you from getting the flu. This medication is an antiviral that is believed to work by stopping the growth of the flu virus. This medication is not a vaccine. To increase the chance that you will not get the flu, it is important to get a flu shot once a year at the beginning of every flu season, if possible. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that rimantadine should not be used for the treatment or prevention of influenza A during the 2010-11 flu season, because the current influenza A virus in the United States is resistant to this medication. For more details, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
