Rimantadine reduces the effectiveness of antiepileptic drugs. Paracetamol and ascorbic acid reduce the maximum concentration of rimantadine in blood plasma by 11%. Cimetidine reduces the clearance of rimantadine by 18%.
Adsorbents, astringents and envelopes decrease absorption of rimantadine.
Urine alkalizing agents (acetazolamide, sodium bicarbonate, etc.) increase the effectiveness of rimantadine due to reduction of its excretion by the kidneys.
When using rimantadine, exacerbation of chronic comorbidities is possible. In elderly patients with arterial hypertension the risk of hemorrhagic stroke increases.
In case of signs in the anamnesis of epilepsy and anticonvulsant therapy performed during rimantadine use, the risk of epileptic seizure increases. In such cases, rimantadine is used in dose of 100 mg daily simultaneously with anticonvulsant therapy.
