Amantadine is an agent that raises the concentration of dopamine in the synaptic cleft by releasing it from neurons and suppressing the process of reuptake. Amantadine is an antiviral drug. The properties in amantadine, which relieve symptoms of Parkinsonism were discovered by accident. Treatment of Parkinsonism with a combination of levodopa, anticholinergic drugs, and amantadine gives better results than using any of these drugs individually. Synonyms are midantan and simmetrel.

Bromocriptine: Bromocriptine, 2-bromoergocriptine (10.1.13), is a semisynthetic derivative of a natural ergot alkaloid, ergocriptin (a derivative of lysergic acid), which is synthesized by bromination of ergocriptin using N-bromosuccinimide [18,19].
