    Pleased with Ampyra, 2 years walking and now struggling
    wannasew posted:
    I am beyond pleased with Ampyra and I have been walking so well that I rememoved the ramp and lift from my car. I had to do without the medication for three weeks and have now been back on it and truly struggling with balance and walking. I would like to hear from others who have been on the drug over 2 years. I truly think it was a miracle ddrug for me.............and I am so scared. I felt like I got my life back and now it is such a slap in theface. I realzie that the drug may have not worked for everyone......but it truly did for me and I am hoping now that I am back on it, it works again.
