Dalfampridine, or Ampyra, is a potassium channel blocker that is shown to improve visual function, motor skills and relieve fatigue in MS patients.

Can you still get compounded 4-AP with Fampyra approved?

Those of you in the USA may know more---are pharmacies allowed to continue co mpounding this. Here in Canada my pharmacist wasn't sure, as Fampyra was just approve. Is it different enough not to be a problem? Are there patent issues? Thanks!

Ampyra? Don't think I need it?

Everytime I go to my Neuro, they test my walking time.
I don't feel like I have slowed at all. But he wants me to start taking this stuff. They delivered it today. With all the kidney warnings on here I am wondering if I should take it? I mean, the Rebif is supposedly bad enough on your kidneys, now I am going to strain them even more with this stuff?
