I think there might be a clue here. Why amantadine "worked" before but not now is interesting.

Amantadine is known to be psychotogenic. This is probably a result of the dopaminergic properties of the drug, which are likely to be the result of increased dopamine release from nerve terminals. This is probably why the drug is efficacious in the treatment of Parkinsons Disease, an illness known to be one of progressively impaired dopaminergic function.
