Is there anyone here with optic neuritis who has noticed any vision improvements after taking Ampyra? I was dx with MS about 5 years ago after going in for vision problems (which ended up being optic neuritis.) My vision has never fully recovered. I think my good eye is at about 20/30 or 40 and the bad one is close to 20/200. Unfortunately my damaged/blind spot is in my central vision in the affected eye. I checked into a trial that is looking into possible benefits of Ampyra for ON. It sounds like I would be eligible, but not sure that I will be able to make the trips to another state.
So, the last time I met with my neuro, I complained a bit more than usual of walking difficulties/spasticity. She mentioned a drug that she'd be willing to prescribe, but I can't remember now which it was.
I guess my whole point is, if I can't participate in the trial, I'm thinking of asking my dr about Ampyra in hopes it could help my vision, along with my walking of course.
