My husband currently has a PLS diagnosis (just under 2 years of symptoms, so it is considered "probable PLS" for now). His only symptoms at this time are speech issues and minor swallowing issues. We've been reading about Neudexta and plan to talk to the doctor at our visit next month. But I was wondering if anybody has tried using just over the counter dextromethorphan. Would the dextromethorphan alone possibly help with his speech and swallowing?

My sister who had experience with both thought they both helped the lability part though Nuedexta was better. No comment on the bulbar part though

Thanks for the info Nikki. We are going to try the dextromethorphan and see if it helps. And then talk to the doctor next month about Nuedexta.
