Getting weaker and weaker on Firdapse
Since I switched to Firdapse, I have been getting weaker and weaker. I was on 90 mg of Ruzurgi, and when I switched to Firdpase, I took the maximum amount of 80 mg. I was then permitted to go up to 90 mg. but I continued to get weaker. Then I had a seizure so I had to go back down to 80 mg. Not only am I having to use a lower amount of Firdapse than I did Ruzurgi, but it has a shorter half life.
I have gone from only using my walker to sit on and take photographs at sporting events and using my scooter to go distances – such as taking photographs at different places on cross country courses, to having to use my walker to get around the bathroom.
My neurologist and I have been trying to decide what to do for me to get stronger, and his most recent suggestion was Cell cept. Does anyone here have any experience with Cell Cept?
