New Drug Increases Mobility with Multiple Sclerosis

Rate This

For patients who do not respond to Ampyra, there are other treatment options that can help with mobility. The NIH notes that for muscle spasms, a doctor may prescribe lioresal, tizanidine or a benzodiazepine. Physical therapy combined with an exercise program can also help the patient's level of mobility. Reducing stress, avoiding hot baths and too much sun exposure can also prevent triggering an episode.
