In brief: Possibly

Amantadine is a medication approved to treat the flu and is used as an anti-parkinson agent.
There are a number of psychiatric side effects including psychosis, suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, hallucinations and confusion. With so many psychiatric side effects one might interpret a person becoming euphoric. Recent evidence suggests it is not as effective as previously reported.
