Default Ampyra co-pay assistance halted

Got this from a member. - D

My boyfriend has MS and has been on Ampyra for at least 2 years. From what Iíve found online, it appears that Acorda therapeutics has canceled their co-pay assistance as of late January because of the court decision against their patents last year.

The bad news is that for those that have been taking the drug, itís very expensive if they still want to get it. The good news is that hopefully there will be a generic version coming out this year 🤞

Just wanted to share in case others are in the same situation.

Just went round and round with these folks. Why couldn't they just say they'd stopped the program. Doesn't bother me, really. Between Ampyra and Tecfidera I'm already in the Catastrophic Stage and all meds are free.
