Hello Cindy,

I have been on Ampyra for about 3 months and so far I have felt little effect from it, good or bad.

I will be seeing my MS doc in about two weeks and more than likely will stop taking it after consulting with him. I know other people have had some good success with it.

I stopped taking it after 1 month. No good results and several bad: Insomnia, dizziness, depression.

I saw my Neuro yesterday, and I am no longer on Ampyra. Whilst I think it did me good in the very beginning, I have come off it due to the side effects. I am taking the Tysabri so I hope that will work for me.
