 1  Ms I took ampyra for 1 month. At first I noticed a huge difference. I can almost say it was a miracle. 15 days in I felt the pill wasn't as effective. Once I stopped taking it my walking was worse than when I started taking it to the point where I felt drop foot on both legs. I know everyone has different results. Praying everyone gets the benefits from this pill from beginning to the end. F 35 30 days

 5  MS for 29 yrs. Falls from foot drop Indigestion, lost some sense of balance, lower back pain, minor throat irritation, insomnia Would I start it again? In a heart beat! I have scraped up my knees way too many times and broken 3 bones and my upper 2 center teeth from falls caused by foot drop. The side effects I have felt are a very small price to pay for the (almost) total elimination of that foot drop. Thus, my high rating. M 62 30 days

History
 2  To improve my walking. On the first day, after the second pill, my legs were tingling uncomfortably. The tingling subsided in a couple of days and I stuck with the regimen for three months. However, my walking didn't improve. And then I ended up getting a nasty UTI, which took two rounds of antibiotics to get rid of. And I'm not prone to UTI's. After a one-month layoff, I tried it again and with the first dose I got a nasty headache and body aches. I'm through with the stuff. M 51 3 months

 2  MS Gait The first few days tingling sensations increased but that subsided after a few days. Increased bladder infections with spasms. It seemed to improve the overall nerve function for me for the first month then seemed to lose its effect. I could walk a bit better for a while but not faster; I'm ceasing the use of this one. M 42 3 months
