Ampyra and Tizanidine

November 24, 2010 at 8:17 am

I have CIDP and take two “MS” drugs … tizanidine to help control my muscle spasms and ampyra to help me walk. I wouldn’t give up either one! The ampyra really helps with my ability to walk – not only better, but also longer. I started feeling the improvement from the ampyra after about a week. You do have to take it 12 hours apart as too much in your system can create unwanted side effects. I have my phone alarm go off at 6am and 6pm because if I miss a dose, I notice a decline. Hope this helps!
