... for a month, and have had swollen ankles for the past 2 weeks. I'm taking the drug to deal with MS related fatigue. the Neurologist said to talk to my primary care doctor, because they don't think it's the drug. My primary care doctor took thyroid test (which was normal) and says it's the Amandatine.
I was on Amantadine. And I was swollen all the time. My legs and feet. My medical doctor took me off Amantadine. I was to see a internal specialist, which I never did. Instead I found another doctor and was put on fluid pills and potassium.
Amantadine did zip for the fatigue for me but it did swell my ankles really badly. I thought they'd never go down again. I stopped taking it because of that and good thing because my blood pressure is through the roof now possibly due to Gilenya.
