    Question No more 4 ? AP, Fampyra greater than recommended dose?

    For probably over the last decade I have been taking 4 ? aminopyridine. I have been taking 40 mg a day, four 10 mg pills every six hours. The pharmacy I was getting the pills compounded that has now informed me that they cannot find any company that has the active ingredient of 4-amino pyridine available to purchase to continue compounding my pills. They are recommending I take Fampyra instead. I tried that about three years ago and I found it did not work for me as well as my compounded pills. Additionally the recommended dose is only 20 mg a day where as I'm taking 40 mg a day.

    So my question to those of you out there are the following :

    1) is anyone else out there still taking 4 ? AP in compounded pills. If you are is it at all possible that he would be able to ask the pharmacy you get your pills from where they source the 4-ap? I'd prefer to find a new source for it so I can continue to take my compounded pills.

    2) if I can't then I have to go with Fampyra. Going to my question for those of you out there with spinal cord injuries are any of you taking greater than the 20 mg per day recommended dosage? Say closer to 40 mg?

    Did you have any trouble getting your doctor to prescribe 40 mg instead of the recommended 20 mg?

    MeOH is a chemical abbreviation for methyl alcohol ... That doesn't sound legitimate to me ... Have you discussed this with a doctor?

    No not at all ... BUT I have Transverse Myelitis.

    Speaking of compounding .. I am very tempted to try this and hear it is 10x's more powerful than 4-ap.

    I am a C456 quad 13 years post. I always kept mum on 4-AP out of ignorance about what it does or what it Potentially can do for me, if anything. What is it? I always thought it's one of those nonsense false-hope things as far as chronics go
