    ttma,

    The above is good advice. Acorda is committed to helping people with spinal cord injury but Ampyra was approved by the FDA only for multiple sclerosis. You should also know that Acorda did two phase 3 trial to determine whether Ampyra would br helpful to people with spinal cord injury. Ampyra apparently was not effective for people with spinal cord injury. This does not meant that it may not help you but the drug clearly has less effect on people with spinal cord injury than those with multiple sclerosis.

    Wise.

    I contacted acorda and their international distributer, they both cannot provide me with the medication since it is not approved for sci patients. My only choice is to get it thru compounding pharmacies, which i don't have an idea how to reach.
