Ive been on this medication for 3 and a half months and have a little more leg strength. The walking has improved slightly however with some spasticity ampyra may kick in when the stretching is done twice a day and the leg musles aren't as stiff.

I have been on this drug for six weeks and have seen NO improvement. I have had greater pain and am wondering if I should continue. Another let down. What is the FDA doing?

I hsve been taking Ampyra for 2 weeks. I can't believe how much it has helped. I have much more stamina when walking. I have also noticed that I have less spacisity (even though my NP told me that it would not help with that) For the first time in years I was able the stand and fold laundry in the laundry room not sitting on the couch! I hope that I continue to make gains. I haven't ... Show Full Comment
