Anyone Stopped Taking Amypra? What Are Your Experiences Before And After Stopping.

Anyone Stopped Taking Amypra? What Are Your Experiences Before And After Stopping.

I've been on Amypra over 2.5 years. At first, I felt it was doing something positive for me ... not so much now. I asked by neurologist what to do ... he told me to stop taking it and I would be able to figure out within days if it was helping or not. Anyone who might be able to share what happens with and without amypra, I'd greatly appreciate your insight ... I've read volumes of info online ... thanks

When I stopped Ampyra, I had a difficult time getting around. My walking has been worse because I fell. I started taking again but damage done.

Does anyone on Ampyra feel significantly better when you miss a dose? I feel amazing when I don't take it and crappy when I do. Doctor is taking me off for the weekend but just wondering if anyone had to deal with this.

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.

Ampyra?

Ampyra?

Who here has taken the drug Ampyra? Obviously one mesixine doesn't work for everyone, but just checking to see if there were positive stories. I kmow the cost is pretty high but I'm hoping my insurance and the assistance program might help.

Sorry it took so long to answer going through a tough time. The Amprya is working great for me :-)
