I've been taking Ampyra for 3 weeks now without any major side effects. I'm walking better than I have for the past 15 years. For me, it's truly a "miracle" drug.

I knew the medication was working the first day. My hip joint was able to move up a bit after I had dragged my leg for two years. I am able to walk quite a bit faster and others have noticed.

This my third wk on Ampyra. Side effects so far are weakness,tingling in feet (only lasted 2 days), balance issues, and had severe nausea on 1st day only. My walking seemed to improve somewhat but could have been cooler weather. Walking has been harder lately could be due to extreme temps.

Since I began taking this medication( 3rd week) I have tingling in my hands and feet (did not have prior to use) My balance improves some. I'm wondering if the strength is too strong? Discussed with my pharmacist and she encouraged me to continue for 30 days. Then consult my doctor if symptoms do not subside.
