How to Take AMPYRA
Take AMPYRA® (dalfampridine) exactly as your doctor tells you to take it. Do not change your dose of AMPYRA. Take one tablet of AMPYRA 2 times each day about 12 hours apart. Do not take more than 2 tablets of AMPYRA in a 24-hour period.
Take AMPYRA tablets whole. Do not break, crush, chew or dissolve AMPYRA tablets before swallowing. If you cannot swallow AMPYRA tablets whole, tell your doctor. AMPYRA is released slowly over time. If the tablet is broken, the medicine may be released too fast. This can raise your chance of having a seizure.
AMPYRA can be taken with or without food.
You can take AMPYRA regardless of what type of multiple sclerosis (MS) you have
AMPYRA has been shown to improve walking across the four major types of MS. This was demonstrated by an increase in walking speed. AMPYRA does not work for everyone. Individual results may vary.
You can take AMPYRA with your current MS medication
You can take AMPYRA even if you are taking other medications for MS, including your disease-modifying therapy. AMPYRA is not meant to replace your current MS medication.
Always tell your doctor about all of the other medications you are taking.
