Ampyra Vs Compounded 4-AP?

Has anyone tried both? and therefore could give their opinion on the differences? /:)

I know for me I think I paid $65 for 100 10mg tablets of compounded 4-AP a few years ago, and I think the monthly cost of Ampyra here in Australia is somewhere in the $2000 ball park. :-O

Script process

My neuro suggested I try Ampyra and started the prescription process which is a real ordeal. I have to wait for a phone call, then call the compounding pharmacy, then call the other number back plus wait for insurance approval then they mail it to me. Is it worth taking or should I forget about it?

Fampyra, any other benefits

Hi all,

I was wondering if there are any other benefits associated with Fampyra other than improved walking speed. I am not particlarly concerned with my walking speed but with my walking. I really look like a wreck when I walk and can no longer walk unassisted. I also wonder about the side effects that caused a previous poster to cease after just one dose. Being able to walk better would be great but when ...
