Prevention of influenza A with Amantadine and Rimantadine. 5 studies conducted, with 1,007 children. Amantadine prevents 5.88% of confirmed flu type A infections during influenza A epidemic outbreaks, while Rimantadine is ineffective. The impact of both on complications is unclear. Both drugs have irritating stomach and gut effects, while Amantadine may also impair the nervous system and lead to psychiatric symptoms.
