I have been taking Ampyra for a little over three weeks. My stamina has improved along with my speed going up stairs. My husband noticed pretty quickly that I was standing up straighter. I have been able to walk across open spaces completely unassisted. I need to get over the fear of falling and do it more often. Plus I need to retrain myself to walk straighter and more confidently.

I've hit the "jackpot." My energy level has improved tremediously. I have been able to cook and clean, all in one day without taking naps in between. Not as much pain and my stability is also a plus.

Almost 8 weeks. Little improvements still continuing. I have noticed that at the end of each dose that the effectiveness starts dropping off. I am able to do stationery bike now. Leg does not wobble. Can raise affected leg much higher. Exercise is key.

Only 14 days into use of Ampyra, and have not seen a big diffence as of yet (as expected), but I have what I would call "moments of brillance" that the walking was much better. Enough that others have commented on it. I have high hopes, and look forward to how I'm doing in 4 to 6 weeks. Good luck all.
