Fampyra and 4-AP

I tried Fampyra for two weeks with no clear reaktion in walking improvement. (MS since 23 years, EDSS 6,5)
I made a break for 3 days (no significant difference, perhaps right leg worse)
Two years ago I made a test with 4-AP, 4x5mg/day.

Now I start again with a 4 week test on Fampyra.
Does anyone have experiance with a combination of Fampyra and 4-AP?

Regards
Uwe

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. ...
