Gocovri (amantadine) extended release capsules are used for treatment of dyskinesia (involuntary movement disorders) in patients with Parkinson's disease receiving levodopa-based therapy, with or without concomitant dopaminergic medications.
Dyskinesia is often a side effect of levodopa-based Parkinson's disease treatment. Approved in August 2017, it is the first medicine for the treatment of dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease patients.
