Is Famprodyne Any Good For Improving Walking

Is Famprodyne Any Good For Improving Walking

About a year ago I was told by my neuro that Famprodyne capsules (two a day)would improve the walking speed and balance. This is a drug made in Ireland and costs about $600 a month in Australia. Unfortunately it is not subsidised by the government. So it is quite expensive. I have been taking it for a year and have not noticed any significant improvement. Has anyone used this drug and if so have you noticed any improvement.

Hey all- AMPYPRA was too expensive But my MS Dr was good enough subscribe something similar it is a compound drug so a compound pharmiscist (one is close to me) does it for me- it's called 4-Aminopyride and I can tell a difference in not so much walk in but my fatigue is not as bad!

Here in the US it is called Ampyra, is manufactured by Accorda, and improves walking and mobility for a large number of members here. There is a lot of info about Ampyra in the Q+A section here, but 1st we should make sure that we are talking about the same drug.

It is supposed to help walking. I have seen another man recently and he believes Fampyra has helped him just walking without a walker. Does it help your fatigue? My doctor has given it to me for fatigue but I would like to know if it works.
