AcipHex Indication

For the prophylaxis and treatment of illness caused by various strains of influenza A virus in adults.

AcipHex Pharmacology

Rimantadine, a cyclic amine, is a synthetic antiviral drug and a derivate of adamantane, like a similar drug amantadine. Rimantadine is inhibitory to the in vitro replication of influenza A virus isolates from each of the three antigenic subtypes (H1N1, H2H2 and H3N2) that have been isolated from man. Rimantadine has little or no activity against influenza B virus. Rimantadine does not appear to interfere with the immunogenicity of inactivated influenza A vaccine.

AcipHex Absorption

Well absorbed, with the tablet and syrup formulations being equally absorbed after oral administration.

AcipHex side effects and Toxicity

Oral LD50 in rats is 640 mg/kg. Overdoses of a related rug, amantadine, have been reported with adverse reactions consisting of agitation, hallucinations, cardiac arrhythmia and death.
