These factors may affect how you should use this medication.
Dizziness/reduced alertness: Fampyra (Fampridine) may cause dizziness, balance problems, or fatigue. Do not drive, operate machinery, or perform other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Fampyra (Fampridine) affects you.
Heart problems: Heart problems involving symptoms of irregular heart rhythms may be made worse by taking Fampyra (Fampridine). If you have heart problems or heart disease, discuss with your doctor how Fampyra (Fampridine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Fampyra (Fampridine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Seizures: Fampyra (Fampridine) has been associated with seizures, even in people who have never had a seizure before. Higher doses of Fampyra (Fampridine) increase the risk of seizures. The risk of seizures also increases if the kidneys are not working properly. If you have medical conditions that increase your risk of seizures or are taking medications that increase your risk of seizures (e.g., Bupropion, Tramadol, Tapentadol), discuss with your doctor how Fampyra (Fampridine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Fampyra (Fampridine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
