Trental And AmpyraUpdated
I have MS and lymphedema. My leg doctor put me on trental 400mg 3x/day then my neurologist put me on Ampyra. Do they both do the same thing... Dilate the blood vessels in the legs? I can't get a yes or no answer.
Hello, Elaine! How are you?
Trental improves blood flow, but Ampyra improves walking ability and speed, as reported by the FDA.
Side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and blurred vision.
Have you had any improvement from taking them?
Thank you for answering. Yes, it helps. My concern is the information I got from ampyra with my first supply said it helps with walking speed, but they are not sure how! If it is in fact from better blood flow then I don't want to take too much.
My last post substituted Ampyra with amputated. Sorry for the confusion!
