Reply To: Ampyra Not Covered By Medicare?

Thank you for the info!  The article that had alerted me to this new possible treatment was published in the Fall/Winter GBS/CIDP newsletter in 2011.  The article: Treatment of the Residual Effects of GBS with Dalfampridine. Was written By: Gareth J Parry, MD – Professor of Neurology. University of Minnisota – Member, GBS/CIDP Medical Advisory Board.

I have a copy of the article and attached it as a jpg image.  I hope it came out OK.  My Neurologist at Cedars Sinai prescribed Ampyra to see if it might help my CIDP.  He did some research on the drug and has experience using it with MS patients.
