Brief Answer: Need not take it at 2 AM. Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. The recommended dose of Ampyra(Dalfampridine) is 10 mg twice a day. It should be taken 12 hrs apart. You should not take double or extra tablet if the dose is missed. So I advise is the don't take Ampyra at 2 AM. Wait until 10:30 AM and take your regular dose of Ampyra. Hope the answer helps you. Let me know if there is any clarification. Regards.
