Fampridine

No hope of fampridine for us in the South West

Google “fampridine decision peninsula” for 2 page simple report. (don’t know how to provide the link here)

It seems a double whammy when benefits are apparent within 14 days and the manufacturer will provide the first 28 days treatment free.

Anyone out there had the opportunity to try this in a different area of the UK?

Thanks for this. It is helpful reading.

My NHS Trust has yet to reach a decision, I believe it may take some time…

I haven’t tried to get fampridine for myself but my friend has been on it for a month now and she got it through Derriford Hospital, Plymouth. I know she received it free for this first month but will have to pay for it herself in future. It does seem to be working for her.

Hi all, I tried fampridine(Fampya) for 3 months at my own expense. See my previous post for details. http://www.mssociety.org.uk/forum/everyday-living/4-ap-uk Hope you find it useful Best Regards Andy
