I had been taking 4-aminopyridine, and was having trouble stabilising on a suitable dose for me, due to side effects.
I had very good results taking 3 x 10mg, but couldn't tolerate the dose, so ended up taking 4 x 5mg.
I then read about 4-aminopyridine-3-methyl hydroxide, a deriviative of
4-AP, being used successfully with spinal research on guinea pigs.
The scientists said it was 10 times more powerful than 4-AP, had minimal side effects (due to being able to use a lower doseage), and the conductivity was like the nerves were working normally. 4-AP has a slower conductivity response.
I found out where 4-AP-3-MeHO was manufactured, and then applied thru the correct organisation to import the drug. It is not for Human use, nor pharmaceutical grade, but my application was approved. I had to sign a waiver form for the manufacturer. I requested a certificate stating the quality of the drug. When it arrived, I had it compounded into 1mg capsules, and started experimenting with the dose rate.
I have stabilised on a dose, and must say that this is a Much better drug than 4-AP. 4-AP IS Ampyra/Fampridine. It's all one and the same, but to have 4-AP compounded only costs about $60 for 100 capsules, whereas Ampyra costs $1,300(?) a year.
I really like the effect that 4-AP-3-MeHO has on me, but I am presently making appointments for CCSVI testing.
