I'm just starting my third month, not a wonder drug as others have said, but I've definitely noticed an increase in leg strength while using it. I tried stopping for a few days to see if I could notice a difference, and the difference was VERY noticeable, my walking was more difficult and clumsy and I was more reliant on my walking stick. With using Ampyra, I can walk comfortably for longer distances, and during my regular spa exercise program, I can comfortably press more weight with more repetitions using my legs.
I still use a walking stick when I walk, primarily for balance, but my dog appreciates the longer dog walk he gets now-a-days.
Subjective conclusions about efficacy are problematic, but my subjective guess would be I have experienced a 25-30% improvement in leg strength and walking ability. Too bad that the drug does nothing to slow or alter the course of MS progression.
