Appropriate studies have not been performed on the relationship of age to the effects of Gocovri® and Osmolex ER™ in the pediatric population. Safety and efficacy have not been established.
Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of amantadine in the elderly. Elderly patients are also more likely to have unwanted effects (eg, falls, hallucinations) and age-related kidney disease, which may require caution in patients receiving Gocovri® and Osmolex ER™.
