was diagnosedwith MS in 2000. my walking has been getting harder to do but i was still able to work. i recently had an exacerbation of my MS. my walking was terrible, tripping all the time, balance was way off. went for my novantrone infusion and the nurse asked me if i was on the newly approved drug ampyra. i wasn't, the nurse told me people were getting out of their wheelchairs after taking it. i had results after 3 days, it was amazing. i use wii-fit and take the pills twice daily and my wii-fit age has gone from 60-70 years old to 36-50 years old. if u have trouble walking u need to give this pill a try. their is criteria to be able to take this, like good kidney function and no history of seizures. u do need to take it 12 hours apart not just twice daily to keep risk for seizures down. i was skepitcal but have had no problems taking it. i am a nurse that works in a hospital and wondered how i would be able to go back to work, i have been off for 2 months and now i believe it is going to be possible because of this medications.View Thread
