Dalfampridine, marketed under the name Ampyra by Acorda Therapeutics in the United States (also referred to as Fampyra in Europe), is an FDA-approved drug that is used to improve walking in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Owing to its chemical properties and its role in the regulation of potassium channels on cell membranes, it is also used as a research tool in therapeutics dealing with several unmet medical conditions, as well as a convulsant to test for anti-seizure agents.

    9 approved therapies. None for MS Primary Progressive. I wonder when will that Day arrive. Like in another 100 yrs from now??? How much longer we have to wait???? There is no words to described how I feel beyond the point of frustration. Waiting and waiting. To die.

      Jackie,
      I feel your pain and frustration. There is a wildly popular European medical device, a brilliant technology, that is breathing life back into people. It’s finally being recognized in the United States as the recovery powerhouse that it is. Trying to figure out how to have you be able to reach me directly. Find me on Facebook or LinkedIn as Veronica Curvy Burroughs and Message me your contact information. I look forward to hearing from anyone who was to know about a non-invasive, non-toxic therapy that is changing the game and works.

    Yep seriously lacking….nothing to help with balance and coordination issues and help of medications for walking?? Approved it may be but comes at a cost….why??

    • Patricia says:

      I take the compounded version (4 – AP) which works for some people in Australia. It is supposed to be the same as Ampyra (marketed as Fampyra here) and quite a lot less expensive.
