    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
