Painting123, welcome to Healing Well. Glad to hear that Amantadine is working so well for you. That's wonderful! I knew the FDA recently approved controlled-release Amantadine for dyskinesia, but hadn't run into anyone using it for that purpose. Thanks for sharing.
I can understand your concern about the Amantadine becoming less effective over time. That seems to be true for several PD medications. If it did stop working I wouldn't think it would suddenly stop working ... would think you would notice a change over time. What dosage are you taking? It's 'controlled release' (CR) also called 'extended release' (ER), right? Have you shared your concerns with your doctor and/or perhaps the staff/nurses? They may have a better feel for the answer to your concerns.
I would celebrate each day that it works. It's really out of your control anyway. I would just live life to the fullest (not in a wreckless way) and the goal that you can do tomorrow what you did today. Keep us posted.
Best of luck,
