    I am sorry to hear this. If you were given a diagnosis of ALS you may post in newly diagnosed if you want. Riluzole is felt to work best early in the disease and then again late in the disease. Although it can affect the liver and you need to do blood tests periodically many do fine with it. I have taken it for more than 4 years
    Today I had my repeat emg after 4 months....the previous one was ok.....but today it was abnormal for whole body emg....I was prescribed 50 mg rilutek ....I have heard it damages liver and how efficient is it if taken f4on initial stage of disease as I am still working but with too much low energy
