My husband started taking the drug Ampyra 3 weeks ago. He has seen an improvement in his walking,stair climbing and overall leg strength. He has also been experiencing some back spasms which we are not sure are related to the drug or MS or just some normal back issues.
I was wondering if anyone taking this mediaction has expereinced any back related side effects and if so what kind and what did you do about it.View Thread
My husband at age 65 was recently diagnosed with PPMS. It has been suggested from some other exchange I have been reading that taking megadoses of Vitamion D3 to get the vitamin D blood level up to >100 and then maintaning it at about the 100 level can stop the occurence of new active lesions and the progression of the disease. I was looking for others experience in this area.View Thread
Thanks for your comments. I had just read about the drug and was going to discuss it with our neurologist. This gives my husband some hope who was recently at age 65 diagnosed with PPMS and leg weakness is his biggest problem.View Thread
