The mechanism of therapeutic action midantana in Parkinson explained by the fact that it stimulates the release of dopamine from neuronal depot and increases sensitivity of dopaminergic receptors for neurotransmitters (dopamine); Thus, even with a decrease of dopamine in the basal ganglia, the conditions for normalizing them occurring in neurophysiological processes. There is also evidence that inhibits midantan pulse generation in motor neurons of the CNS, being weak antagonist of NMDA-glutamate receptor.
Stimulates the release of dopamine from neuronal depot, increases the sensitivity of dopamine receptors to mediators. Antiviral effect probably attributable to the ability of amantadine to block viral entry into cells of A.
