    Neudexta

    Hi all, Curious to know what kind of positive effect Neudexta may have on speech issues? Does it make it any better? Just holds off progression? I don't have PBA, and swallowing isn't too bad. It's movement of the tongue when eating and speaking that's the worst of it. I asked my dr. and...

    Alternate for Neudexta?

    This was brought up in the thread re: B12 shots, and I didn't want to hijack the thread further. In that thread, we discovered 3 Canadians (myself, Trixi80 and Gorby) all seem to be seeing the same neuro- who is quite conservative in offering treatments and options. Neudexta was brought up...

    Neudexta

    Hi everyone, I just posted my story on "newly diagnosed ". I am wondering if anyone has tried Neudexta and If so, what has your experience been? I currently am taking Rilutek and Zoloft. My neurologist prescribed the Neudexta (for speech and swallowing issues), but with hesitation due to...

    Neudexta

    My PALS was prescribed neudexta. He doesn't have a feeding tube yet, but has some difficulty swallowing pills. I forgot to ask doc if the capsule could be opened and incorporated into pudding or applesauce. Does anyone know?

    Clinic last Wednesday

    Asking for questions to ask doctors...

    Asking for questions to ask doctors… I posted on your DIHALS re my husband several days ago after his 3rd neurologist referred him back for an EMG with the director of our ALS clinic. (First neurologist diagnosed bulbar-onset ALS in April 2013, sent him for EMG and 2nd opinion with ALS clinic...

    Any diagnosed have this much uncertainty at first?

    I am wondering if anyone has experienced symptoms developing along these lines, because my husband seems an enigma to the 3 neurologists who are passing him around. A year and a half ago, my husband's speech became notably slurred. I had noticed a tremor in his hand and occasional slurring a...

    1st clinic visit

    FVC=69. Peg tube suggested. I've been taking Neudexta for a week and it has really improved my swallowing-too bad its not FDA approved for that-insurance wont pay for it. Bulbar and left arm involvement so far. Tongue a little weak. Was told to stay away from milk because of phlegm production...
