Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: amifampridine phosphate
tablets equivalent to 10mg amifampridine, 3 to 4 times per day
Drug: Amifampridine Phosphate
tablets equivalent to 10mg amifampridine, titrated to an efficacious and tolerable dose, 3 to 4 times a day

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (Safety and Tolerability) [ Time Frame: over 21 months ]
    Evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability amifampridine phosphate through the number of patients with treatment-emergent adverse events mapped to the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA) SOCs and PTs. [ Time Frame: over 21 monts ] Descriptive statistics will be used to summarize study data.
