Ampyra May Improve Walking Speed

Ampyra (dalfampridine) has been approved by the FDA. Over 900 people have been taking Ampyra for 5 years during the clinical studies as the drug was evaluated for safety and efficacy. Over 40% of those tested increased their walking speed.

Ampyra can be taken by people with any type of Multiple Sclerosis and it can be taken with any of the other approved MS drugs.

Ampyra is in the form of extended release tablets. Take one tablet every 12 hours. If you miss a dose, don’t make up the missed dose. Just start again at the next scheduled time.

People with problems with seizures or kidney problems should not take Ampyra due to danger that the concentration of the drug will increase in the blood beyond the amount considered to be safe.

Ampyra is not a potassium supplement, it is a Potassium Channel Blocker.

If you’re interested in more information about Ampyra, talk to your health care provider.

I’m going to be starting Ampyra next week. The scheduled delivery date is Thursday. I’ll let you know if it makes any difference in my walking speed! I’d sure love to get to the phone before the caller hangs up!

They said that most people saw results in 2-6 weeks, but the pharmacist said that sometimes it has taken up to three months. I’ll give it the three months and hope for the 2 weeks!

  1. Hi Linda
    This sounds very positive for people with MS. As you know my uncle lived with it for about 30 years.
    I look forward to hearing your progress on it and results in a few weeks sounds very promising.
    All the very best with it.

    • Sue,
      I’m sorry for your uncle, he had this dreaded disease before there was any medication to slow the progression! My friend’s grandma had it also, probably around the same time your uncle did. She was considered lazy for most of her life. Hopefully they’ll be able to find the cause which might lead to a cure!

  2. Hi Linda
    Ampyra sounds like a very promising drug. I hope it brings the results you hope for and deserve and look forward to hearing about your progress.
    It would be interesting to hear the results others have had with this drug and I hope they will visit here and leave their comments.

    • Louise~
      Thank you! I hope Amprya works for me too! And it will be great when I get the word out and people with MS will start visiting!! It all takes time!

  3. Hi Linda if it would not take much of your time I would like to know if Ampera can provide significant improvements and permanent results to the user.

  4. It’s awesome for me to have a web site, which is helpful designed for my experience. thanks admin

  5. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I should check
    things out. I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to exploring your

    • I’m curious, do you have MS, or know someone who does? I honestly can’t imagine anyone spending time to even comment on MSrelief if they don’t 🙂
